THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A two-day meeting of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) State committee concluded here on Thursday.
The meeting was primarily convened to enable the party national leadership to report the decisions of the party Polit Bureau and the Central committee on matters relating to Kerala, including the disciplinary action against Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan.
Although the Central decision found general acceptance among the members of the State committee, there were also a few who felt that the national leadership should have been more even-handed in its handling of the Kerala issues.
The party is organising three regional conferences beginning Friday to explain the disciplinary action against Mr. Achuthanandan and the conclusions of the Central committee about the reasons for the electoral setback suffered by the party and the Left Democratic Front (LDF) in the Lok Sabha elections.
