Karunakaran keeps off AICC meet

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, AUG. 21 . The senior Congress leader, K. Karunakaran, flew in here today from Delhi after skipping the AICC meet there.

He was tight-lipped when reporters asked him why he had stayed away from the meet. It was for the first time in his long political career that he had not attended an AICC session.

Mr. Karunakaran was keeping a low profile since he was dropped from the Congress Working Committee to which he was a permanent invitee.

His son and former PCC president, K. Muraleedharan, also did not attend the AICC meet. - UNI
