Flays Achuthanandan for his silence

KOLLAM: The Revolutionary Socialist Party (B) (RSP(B) has termed the Self-Financing Colleges Bill brought by the Left Democratic Front (LDF) Government as a betrayal of those who had taken to the streets and fought against the self-financing colleges at the instance of the LDF during the previous UDF rule.

In a statement here, RSP(B) general secretary Shibu Baby John alleged that it has to be doubted whether the meeting between Education Minister M.A. Baby and the management representatives of the self-financing colleges was one to work out a compromise formula as claimed or one to create loopholes for the benefit of the managements.

He said that the silence on the part of Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan does not come as a surprise.

It is no secret that Mr. Achuthanandan, who had been very vociferous during the UDF rule, is today finding himself in captivity, he added
