Mr.Radhakrishnan dismissed that report and said he was asked by the wife of late Chandrasekaran to take over the leadership but he declined to accept that offer.

However the leadership of the CWC had misunderstood him and neglected to his request for a Deputy Minister post in the UPFA government.

He said that the CWC has been neglecting his request for a Deputy Ministerial post. .V.S. Radhakrishnan is a CWC member who successfully contested under the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) at the last General Elections.
