Kerala Congress

The Kerala Congress is a recognized State political party in Kerala, India and the only regional party in the state.

The party was founded by K. M. George in October 1964 after a group of legislators decided to break from the Indian National Congress.

The party has its roots in the Congress in Travancore and is traditionally dominated by the farmers in the state, mostly the Saint Thomas Christians and with an important presence of Nairs; however leaders from all communities are represented.

The party distinctively argues for the rights and privileges of Kerala state in a political spectrum which otherwise consists of state bodies of parties owing allegiance to various `high commands' at the national level.
