The Indian Express reported that KC Kannan, joint general secretary and therefofr third in the hierarchy of the organisation,  was removed from his post after he admitted to the leadership that he wished to go back to family life and look after his ailing father. However, according to reports, by then the leadership already knew about Kannan's relationship with a woman.
