CPM censures VS for public stand against party

CPM state unit in Kerala, with apparent backing from central leadership, censured leader of the opposition and senior party leader V S Achuthanandan for his views on T P Chandrasekharan murder case and the CPM move to join hands with a group of BJP dissidents in Kannur district.

In a statement after its meeting in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday, the state committee termed Achuthanandan’s remarks on the issues “inappropriate” and asked the veteran leader not to take public stands against party’s official positions.

Achuthanandan, the opposition leader in the state, has repeatedly landed the ‘official’ faction of the party in trouble with his straight talk and controversial opinions that contradict what the party’s official position in the state.

Last week, Achuthanandan extended support to the demand by K K Rema, wife of the slain Revolutionary Marxist Party (RMP) leader T P Chandrasekharan, for a CBI probe into his murder. The opposition leader also sought caution ahead of the CPM move to welcome a group of NaMo Vichar Manch (NVM) activists – whom he called “Narendra Modi’s men” – into the party.
