Thiruvananthapuram: The CPI-M State committee meet that concluded here Thursday has reportedly decided to leave to the party Central committee the question whether an inquiry should be held into the allegation of V S Achuthanandan’s former private secretary S Rajendran that Achuthanandan had met T G Nandakumar to try to turn events in the SNC-Lavalin case against party State secretary Pinarayi Vijayan.
CPI-M central committee member P Karunakaran, who conducted an inquiry into the allegations and submitted the report at the two-day session here, has also suggested the issue be left to the central committee.
Rajendran had alleged that Achuthanandan had made several moves to trap Vijayan in the Lavalin case.
The State secretariat meeting also reportedly reached in a consensus not to turn the issue into a controversy.
Reacting to the reports, Achuthanandan said the people would reject such reports with contempt. A CBI investigation was on into the Lavalin case and it was ridiculous to say that I had interfered with the investigation, Achuthanandan said.
