I will consult lawyers: Achuthanandan
After the initial elation over a single judge's order quashing the FIR against him in the land-allotment case, former chief minister VS Achuthanandan said he would consult lawyers.
Earlier in the day, the 88-year-old leader had termed the single bench order as 'a victory of truth and justice’ and accused the UDF government of acting with political motives.
Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, however, refuted the charge holding that his government had never interfered in the case with political intentions.
Achuthanandan also had a veiled dig at his detractors in CPI(M), alleging that the case was a conspiracy by Chandy and Indian Union Muslim League leader and Industries Minister PK Kunhalikutty to remove him as Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly and install someone else in that position.
