Indicating that the differences between party veteran V.S Achuthanandan and CPI(M) has come to an end, party state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said “that chapter is over” and a new one has begun.
The party state committee and secretariat who met on Tuesday ratified the party Central Committee (CC) decisions, Balakrishnan told reporters.
All party members would accept the decision of the CPI(M) Central Committee to include the former Chief Minister as special invitee to state committee, he said.
“Achuthanandan is a top leader of the party and one who was in the politics since the days of independence. Party CC considered all these aspects and included him as a special invitee to Central Committee also,” Balakrishnan said.
Achuthanadan can express his views in the state committee, he said.
The essence of part of the CC’s decision was the chapter related to Achuthanandan’s past activities in the party. That chapter was “closed”. A new chapter has begun to strengthen the party, he said.
The party’s CC, which met on January 8, had warned 93-year-old Achuthanandan for “violating” party norms and asked him to abide by its organisational norms and discipline.
