On the run-up to the Triennial Delegates' Conference (TDC) due to be held at the year's end, SUPP gets a bit more bustled up, with rumours floating around on the race to the top post in the party. Sure enough, momentum is going to build up over the next two months.
In fact, rumblings of discontent burst out last year when Sibu SUPP hit out against GC for his dismal leadership. WSK openly threw challenge to GC, signalling for the first time the blast-off of the racing game. The open conflict took the party to the verge of landing in an unsettled state.
Then the drama took a sharp u-turn, with WSk throwing his full support behind GC to stay on to the top post.
The turn of event took a lot of watchers by surprise, sending them to almost fall off in balance.
WSK strategised to back up GC showed that he was working towards gaining an upper hand in the power race.
WSK's move was highly strategic and the watchers described it as intelligent politically.
