The CPM central leadership is yet again walking the tightrope on the complaints made against veteran leader VS Achuthanandan by the party's Kerala state unit led by his rival Pinarayi Vijayan.

It is unlikely that the party will go for any major disciplinary action against the leader even as the issue will come up for discussion at the two-day central committee meeting, beginning in New Delhi on Saturday.

VS is taking a "moralistic and correct" stand when the state unit is in a spot of bother over a series of issues, including the murder of an ex-CPM leader who had left the party to form a new outfit. Though the state unit said it has no role in Chandrashekharan’s murder, many party workers have been arrested for their alleged role.
