Kochi: Veteran Marxist leader V S Achuthanandan Tuesday declined to comment on the state committee's decision to expel three members of his personal staff from the CPI-M for allegedly leaking party information to the media.
"The matter is before the Central committee which will discuss it. Let us wait for their response," Achuthanandan told reporters here.
The CPI-M state committee had two days ago decided to expel Press Secretary K.Balakrishnan, Personal Assistant A.Suresh and Additional Private Secretary V.K Sasidharan.
The charge against them was that they had leaked to the media contents of a review document prepared by the state committee for internal circulation during the CPM Congress in Kozhikode last year.
