Pinarayi Vijayan in no mood to forgive VS Achuthanandan
ALAPPUZHA: The split between State Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan and Central committee member V.S. Achuthanandan seems irrevocable with the latter leaving his Velikakkakthu house, where he stayed put on Saturday after boycotting the 21 Party Conference being held here.
The embattled party veteran, who had taken an unrelenting stance ever since he got damning report from his rival, left for his Cantonment house in the State capital at 4am, adding a new twist to the existing situation.
Mr Vijayan, continues his defiance despite reducing the conference to an ugly spat between him and VS, and has made no move to placate VS.
On Sunday, Mr Vijayan reportedly informed delegates on Sunday that VS had been forewarned of the consequences of leaking the letter to PB. "The warning was ignored by VS.
That is why the party was forced to pass the resolution against him." However, Vijayan's new move comes in response to VS's ruling out the allegations of asking Central leadership to investigate how the letter was leaked.
However, the delegates participating in the conference lashed out at VS on Sunday criticizing his absence. According to the media reports, majority of the delegates demanded strong action against VS as he continues to take swipes at the party's stand. VS's decision to boycott the conference has given further fodder to take punitive action against him.
What remains to be seen is whether he will be inducted into the party committee. The State committee members list is expected to be out by Monday.
However, V.S. Achuthanandan, who is unlikely to quit the party, is still tightlipped about his future course of action. A source close to VS informed this newspaper that he is likely to speak to the media on Monday after ascertaining the situation of the PB meeting held on Sunday.
