THIRUVANATHPURAM: Ending suspense, Kerala chief minister V S Achuthanandan attended the CPI-M rally 'Nava Kerala
March' led by his betenoir and party state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan here.
The long-drawn feud in the state CPM between the two leaders recently intensified with Achuthanandan declining to toe the party's
official line of defending Vijayan, who is sought to be arraigned as an accused in the SNC Lavalin graft case by the CBI.
While the party in the state has cranked up its entire strength to make the rally a big event, Achuthanandan had not confirmed
whether he would turn up for the event or not.
The 85-year-old Marxist veteran has refused to bless Vijayan's road-show which started from Kasargode on February 22 or address
any meeting connected with it.
