Once again revolting against the CPI(M) central committee’s stand on the Lavalin scandal,Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanadan on Wednesday said the ensuing Politburo meeting would discuss the letters purportedly written by party veteran the late E Balanandan to general secretary Prakash Karat saying “the party had lost its face over the SNC-Lavalin deal”.

“The Politburo will discuss whether or not Balanandan had written such a letter to the party central leadership,” Achuthanandan said after the weekly Cabinet briefing. A former Politburo member,Balanandan,who died last month,had reportedly written to Karat in 2005 that “the deal with Lavalin was a wrong decision and the manner in which the deal was inked was an insult to the normal procedures in this regard”.

However,Pinarayi Vijayan in Palakkad on Wednesday said he would continue in the post until the party says otherwise.
