Thiruvananathapuram, Feb 20 IANS | 8 months ago

Veteran CPI-M leader V.S. Achuthanandan Thursday admitted to having met lawyer and Aam Aadmi Party leader Prashant Bhushan but asserted that he is not interested in joining the Arvind Kejriwal-led party.


The 90-year-old founding member of the Communist Party of India-Marxist and former Kerala chief minister was responding to a question about speculation that he might join AAP as he has been cut up with the leadership of his party led by its state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan for several years.

"Even when Kejriwal was a school student, I was busy working for my party and at one point of time, I was also the chief minister here (2006-11). He has not probably understood me and my thinking. I do not have any plans at all to join AAP," said Achuthanandan.

To media persons noting that a crucial CPI-M central committee meeting is going to be held in the first week of March, where disciplinary action might be considered against him, he shot back: "I am not at all worried with such things."
