UDF demands Achuthanandan's resignation
May 26, 2007 20:29 IST
The Congress-led United Democratic Front opposition in Kerala on Saturday wanted the Communist Party of India-Marxist to remove V S Achuthanandan from the post of chief minister in the wake of the party suspending him from the politburo for "breach of discipline."
In a statement in Thiruvananthapuram, UDF convener P P Thankachan also asked the CPI-M to remove the party state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan from the party post.
If they continue in the present posts, the "stalemate" now prevailing in the state administration would only intensify, he said.
The two should quit their posts in the interest of the state or should be removed, he added.
