Prashant Bhushan meets Achuthanandan

Soon after his meeting with Achuthanandan, Bhushan made it very clear that his intention was not to invite the veteran leader to his party. ‘I just came here to seek his help, support and guidance,’ he told the reporters.

Bhushan’s meeting with Achuthanandan raised speculation that AAP might be thinking in same line of Left’s call for a third front in near future. Sources said, apart from discussing AAP’s ideology, they have also shared thoughts on general political situation and legal issues concerning some public interests cases being pursued by the CPI (M) leader.

He claimed that though Achuthanandan knew about our party’s stand, but formally he wanted to discuss AAP’s aim and objective with him. ‘I told him that how people across the country are expressing their support and hope in AAP to weed out corruption from the country with a concrete changes in the power structure. This is a new undertaking in which all right-minded people should come together,’ he said.

Recently, Achuthanandan had presented to Bhushan an award instituted by Kerala Lawyers Club and wished success to the AAP and its ministry in Delhi. This is not for the first time they have met with each other. In 2012, he had last year met Achuthanandan seeking his support to the anti-nuclear power plant agitation at Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu.
