In a warning to 93-year-old Marxist veteran V.S Achuthanandan for ‘violating’ party norms, the CPI(M) on Sunday asked him to abide by its organisational norms and discipline.
Talking to reporters after the three-day long party central committee meeting in Thiruvananthapuram, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said the committee has approved the report of the Politburo Commission on Kerala issues.
It warned Achuthanandan about the violation of party norms pinpointed in the report and asked the veteran to abide by the party norms and discipline, he said.
Yechury said Achuthanandan would be an invitee for the party state committee and central committee.
“He can articulate his views in the state committee and not outside”, Yechury said.
The central committee (CC) meeting, which began on Friday, also discussed the issues related to former industries minister E.P Jayarajan, who has been named as first accused in a case related to alleged nepotism over appointment in a key post in a public sector undertaking during his tenure.
Yechury said the central committee sought a report from the state committee after an inquiry and submit it for its consideration.
“The issue of Jayarajan and P.K Sreemathy (party MP from Kannur, whose son Sudheer Nambiar was appointed managing director of Kerala State Industrial Enterprises Ltd) came up at the CC”, he said.
“But as an FIR has been registered and the case is now in the court, the central committee did not discuss further on the matter”, he said.
