Thiruvananthapuram: The leader of opposition for the state V S Achuthanandan is deeply hurt over his name missing in the list of those attending the LDF convention at Aruvikkara constituency. Towards this, the leader has taken a stand that until the central leadership’s intervention, he would not visit Aruvikkara.
Achuthanandan is likely to intimate his decision to the central leadership soon.
The LDF’s election convention is generally inaugurated by V S Achuthanandhan. It was VS who inaugurated the Neyattinkara and Piravom conventions.
VS feels that he was excluded from the convention purposefully and was like an insult to him. However, the official leadership informed that the list prepared by party district committee also excludes the name of PB member Pinarayi Vijayan.
There are also reports that the CPM candidate M Vijayakumar will very soon meet VS to pacify him and request him to join the campaign.
Kanam Rajendran, C Divakaran, Mathew T Thomas, Neelalohitadasan Nadar, Uzhavur Vijayan and Kadannapally Ramachandran will address the convention.
