Kerala CM attends Vijayan's rally
Ending suspense, Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan on Wednesday attended the CPI-M rally 'Nava Kerala March' led by his bete noire and party state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan at Thiruvanathpuram.
The long-drawn feud in the state CPI-M between the two leaders recently intensified with Achuthanandan declining to toe the party's official line of defending Vijayan, who is sought to be arraigned as an accused in the SNC Lavalin graft case by the CBI.
While the party in the state has cranked up its entire strength to make the rally a big event, Achuthanandan had not confirmed whether he would turn up for the event or not.
The 85-year-old Marxist veteran has refused to bless Vijayan's road-show which started from Kasargode on February 22 or address any meeting connected with it.
