WORK IN CONGRESS
Tug of War WITH RAJAJI
Kamaraj was called as a King Maker by
foreigners 35 years ago.
Since as he was having the capacity of
doing anything in the party he had this title. He did this achievement in 1931
itself. Congress committee conference was held at Madurai in 1931 . There were
two parties in Congress then. One was headed by Sathyamoorthy and the other by
Rajaji. Poor were on the side of Sathyamoorthy. Hence others neglected this
group. Kamaraj got wild of this. He supported Sathyamoorthy. As Sathyamoorthy
was the leader of the Conference he was taken in a procession in which the group
of Rajaji did not participated . After the meeting the election for Tamilnadu
Congress Party presidentship was conducted.
V.Kaliyana Sundara Mudaliar , E.V.R.Periyar and Srinivasa Iyengar left Congress.
At the end of the conference there was a proposal to elect Rajaji as
President of P.C.C. and Sathya moorthy as Vice president. Accordingly Rajaji was
elected as President. But in the case of Vice-President Sathyamoorthy was
elected as Vice President only after some tussle as Rajaji's group betrayed the
proposal. Sathyamoorthy's group captured the working committee.
