No ticket for Achuthanandan in Ker polls
CPI-M sources said the state secretariat, which met here with party General Secretary Prakash Karat in attendance, did not favour 87-year-old Achuthanandan`s candidature.
The secretariat decision would be presented to the state committee meeting in the evening after which a formal announcement is expected.
The question over fielding Achuthanandan–a four-time MLA–again to lead ruling CPI-M Left Democratic Front (LDF) has been dominating the political discourse in the state for the last few weeks.
The CPI-M`s Central leadership had referred the matter back to the state unit for a decision on fielding the veteran leader.
