Thiruvanthapuram, May 21: The CPI-M on Thursday told its seniormost leader in Kerala, former chief minister V.S. Achuthandan, not to do anything that shows the party and its leaders in poor light. But the CPI-M’s Kerala state secretary, Kodiyeri Balakrishn, however made it clear that the warning should not be seen as “a discipliry act” against the 91-year-old Achuthndan. “The statement is meant for our party cadres to explain the entire things in the wake of Achuthandan’s recent statement where he said that the politburo got him wrong on his remarks about the party. “We wish to clarify that the politburo was not wrong and it was Achuthandan who is continuing to toe a different line, which he has been doing for some time now.
“We wish to remind him (Achuthandan) that he should ensure that he toes the party line. We ask him to abide by all the decisions of the party.” Balakrishn also listed Achuthandan’s earlier breaches of party discipline — from almost a decade back. “He was removed from the politburo... even after that, his statements had put the party in a tight spot. “What has been observed is that whenever the Congress-led UDF lands in a spot of bother, Achuthandan has time and again surfaced and creates some issues in the party.
