Kerala CPI-M leader and CM fight over a demolition drive

The infighting between the Kerala unit of Communist Party of India (Marxist), and its Chief Minister V. S Achuthanandan over demolition of encroachments from public land has split-wide-open with the leaders accusing each other of crossing the limits.

Thiruvananthapuram, May 24 : The infighting between the Kerala unit of Communist Party of India (Marxist), and its Chief Minister V. S Achuthanandan over demolition of encroachments from public land has split-wide-open with the leaders accusing each other of crossing the limits.

The Left Democratic Front (LDF) government headed by the CPI-M had started razing illegal constructions on public land across the state, including a hill resort, which has angered the state unit of the CPI-M and some of its constituents.

The Kerala Government had declared the Munnar hill resort as a special zone and froze all constructions.

More than 10,000 hectares of forestland is believed to have been encroached by people, including political leaders and film stars.

Pinarayi Vijayan, secretary of the Kerala unit of CPI (M) attacked the Chief Minister, V.S. Achuthanandan blaming him of taking personal credit for the demolition drive.

Achuthanandan on the other hand blamed Vijiyan of leaking party information to the media.

Both sides accused each other of breaking party rules.

"He (V.S Achuthanandan) is a responsible politburo member. He should not have raised suspicion about another politburo member with the media," said Vijayan at a news conference on Wednesday.

"If he (Pinarayi Vijayan) says that I have crossed the limits of a politburo member, he should think about it, as it is also applicable to him," said V.S Achuthanandan on Thursday.

Vijayan has blamed a "media syndicate" working in the State of trying to divide CPI (M).

The CPI (M) politburo - the top decision-making body -- is scheduled to meet on Friday in New Delhi and is expected to mull over the issue to defuse the crisis in its Kerala wing.

The coalition government in the State has completed one year in office and both Vijayan and Achuthanandan have had a running battle since the beginning, with the central leadership intervening on several occasions.
