Palakkad: It appears that CPI-M will have a tough time after the ouster of three staff members of Leader of the Opposition V.S Achuthanandan.
Some posters have sprung up in some places of Palakkad on Tuesday expressing support to A Suresh, personal assistant of Achuthanandan.
Flex banners put up at Municipal Stadium, PWD Guest House and Kalmandapam Junction shout support to the VS loyalist. “Comrade, continue your struggle,” “We are with you in your struggle,” read some of them.
However, the posters were destroyed within hours after they were put up.
Achuthanandan's press secretary K. Balakrishnan, additional private secretary V.K. Sasidharan and personal assistant A. Suresh were sacked by the politburo Sunday for allegedly leaking classified information about the deliberations of the 2008 Coimbatore Party Congress to the media in February 2010.
Suresh was CPI-M’s Kalmandapam branch committee member.
