Another split?

"Yet another split in the Tamil Nadu unit of the All-India Forward Bloc (AIFB) became imminent on Thursday, with the suspended general secretary L. Santhanam convening a `State committee' meeting here, claiming to be the "real AIFB". The decision of the Central Committee to place the Usilampatti MLA under suspension was taken at a meeting in Kolkata. The meeting took a "unanimous decision" to "seize his membership," according to the party general secretary Debabrata Biswas. This follows a reply to the showcause notice served on Mr. Santhanam "which was not satisfactory." However, Mr. Santhanam claimed that he continued to be the general secretary of the State Committee. Thursday's meeting appealed to the Central Committee to withdraw the suspension order. 23 out of 34 members attended the meeting, which wanted the Central Committee to give due credence to the views of the State unit."
