CPM State unit for action against VS

Thiruvananthapuram: The State committee of CPM, which met here on Monday, passed a resolution demanding severe action against veteran leader V.S Achuthanandan for breaching party discipline.

The resolution has demanded the party Central leadership’s clearance to remove Achuthanandan as Leader of the Opposition in the Kerala Assembly.

Unfazed by the organisational consequences, CPI-M stalwart V S Achuthanandan had, in an interview with a news channel said he was dropped from the party Polit Bureau (PB) a few years back for telling the truth about a corruption case in which state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan was facing inquiry.

The 88-year-old leader said he had told the PB he could only stand by the truth in the matter and not by the official line of the party that it was a fabricated case.

Achuthanandan was referring to his removal from the CPI-M 's apex body when he was Chief Minister in the context of charges brought against Vijayan pertaining to a contract awarded to Canadian company SNC Lavalin to renovate three power stations in Kerala, when the latter was electricity minister in 1997.
