The News Minute | November 22, 2014 | 8.10 pm “Old pictures tells us what we used to be but we are no longer” We dug out from some government , private archives and Facebook pages to come up with some of the most incredible pictures of Kerala politicians at various private and public events. Their younger days photos show a facet of their character you may have never seen. Some look much the same as they do today, others are not even recognizable. In this case there is no distinction of party lines. Whether you are a Communist or a Congressi, these collection of vintage photographs are going to fascinate you. It is a collection of pictures from Facebook and other websites that show glimpses of CPIM and Congress history in Kerala, probably you have seen some before, may not have seen some others.     E.M.S Namboodirippad takes oath as Kerala's first Chief Minister in 1957 ( CPIM Kerala website)    A file photo of Rajiv Gandhi with A.K Antony former Union Defense Minister , Oommen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala (Photo : OICC Abudhabi Alappuzha District Committee Facebook page)    V S Achuthanandan, Kerala Opposition leader addressing the members of the Communist party ( Photo : V S Achuthanandan's facebook page)   Karunakaran standing in a queue to cast his vote (Photo : OICC Abudhabi Alappuzha District Committee facebook page) Former Chief Minister of Kerala and Communist party leader E.K Nayanar in his library (Photo : CPIM Kerala website)   K.
