CPI(M) stalwart V S Achuthanandan on Thursday rejected AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal’s invitation to him to join his party, saying it only betrayed the latter’s ignorance of the long political struggles he had waged based on Marxism-Leninism.

The nonagenarian leader was reacting to Mr Kejriwal’s statement during a television interview yesterday that he would welcome Mr Achuthanandan to his party and the support of honest leaders like him would strengthen the anti-corruption campaign in the country.

“It seems that Kejriwal had not properly understood my politics and my struggles based on the philosophy of dialectical materialism and Marxism-Leninism. If he was aware of that, he would not have made such a statement,” he told reporters here.
