Palakkad: Leader of the Opposition V.S Achuthanandan will not attend the concluding session of the CPI-M plenum here on Friday. Official reports say that the leader decided to skip the session citing high fever as a reason.
Achuthanandan had faced sharp criticism from the official faction in the previous days of the plenum. They had also sought strict action against the CPI-M veteran for his public remarks and actions against the party.
The plenum is being held in Palakkad mostly to discuss and take decisions on strengthening organisational structure of the party and rectify its weaknesses and lapses.
