THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The CPM state secretariat which met here on Thursday adopted a resolution rejecting party veteran V S Achuthanandan’s  statements made through interviews given to certain TV channels as ‘’baseless and wrong.’’

The resolution also warned VS against making public statements which would reflect different views about the party. It wanted the veteran leader to toe the collective decisions of the party.

Briefing the media here, CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said the resolution had called upon VS to toe the party line. However, he made it clear that the resolution was not a public censure.

‘’The secretariat was forced to adopt a resolution as VS had commented on the politburo’s statement that his statements were not in the interests of the party. He had pointed out that the PB had not properly understood the issue before issuing the statement. It was an open rejection and challenge to the politburo. In such a scenario, it is necessary to make it clear that the PB’s statement was not on the basis of misunderstanding,’’ Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said.

The resolution states when the media and bourgeois spokesmen try to spread false propaganda against the party, the statement of VS about the party secretary is giving credence to such propaganda.
