It seems that Communist Party of India (Marxist) Kerala unit has still not identified the actual reason behind their failure in the recently concluded Aruvikkara by-election. First the party blamed BJP and later CPIM leaders said many of their votes had been diverted to BJP. The second explanation by the comrades was that Aruvikkara was a scam by Congress lead United Democratic Front (UDF) . Now CPI (M)'s ally CPI has come up with a new explanation. In fact, the CPI has put the blame squarely on... Wait... The CPI(M). CPI has alleged that the internal conflict inside the party between opposition leader VS Achuthananthan and General Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan was responsible for its failure in the by-election. They have also said that VS and Pinarayi did not share a stage together during campaign and that was one of the main reasons for the failure. Wonder if the CPI(M) is seeing red.
