V S Achuthanandan on Thursday openly regretted his anti-party stance, for which the CPM had censured him. The move by VS comes a day after the party state committee had asked him to tender an apology in public.
VS admitted that it was wrong on his part to compare party state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan to S A Dange, under whose leadership the Communist Party split into two in 1964.
VS said that he should not have ventured for the Kudankulam visit and called on the family of slain RMP leader T P Chandrasekharan on the day when people went to polling booths in Neyyantinkara.
VS also dropped enough hints that he stuck to his stand on RMP leader's murder and the Kudankulam issue. In the both matters, VS had gained mass support by sailing along the prevailing public mood.
Asked if he would remain as a disciplined worker, VS said he would continue to intervene in issues within the party and outside. "My stand remains the same on rebel leader's murder. It was wrong on the part of Vijayan to repeatedly dub the slain Chandrasekharan as a renegade,'' said VS, who called the RMP leader a martyred comrade.
On the Kudankulam issue, VS took credit for the resolution passed by the CPM central committee that stressed on the nuclear plant's safety aspects. He has also found a reason to stick to his stand on Kudankulam saying that in matters of science such as nuclear energy, discussions are going on and a final verdict could not be made at this stage.
