On the eve of CPI(M) state meeting, Kerala opposition leader VS Achuthanandan has waved the red flag at Taj group again. This time, it is the brandnew Rs 30-crore Taj Leisure- Muthoot Pappachan venture at Kovalam beach that has upset the 81-year old CPI(M) Politburo member on Wednesday.

Mr Achuthanandan, who visited Kovalam beach on Republic day, suddenly took to a sit-in before the Taj Green Cove Resort alleging the hotel of claiming more land than they were entitled to.
