Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 11: Admitting that differences of opinion among his Cabinet colleagues on certain issues had created a bad impression in the public, Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan today said steps will be taken to end such a practice.
''I am confident that such steps will yield results,'' he told newspersons here, while reacting to certain remarks by Finance Minister Thomas Issac and Agriculture Minister Mullakkara Ratnakaran over the fund allocation for a farmers' insurance scheme.
He said expressing diverse views in the public by Ministers, was a serious issue and it had created a bad impression about the government.
Asked to comment on the disciplinary action taken against some of his supporters during the CPI(M) conferences, Mr Achuthanandan said the party Polit Bureau had issued certain guidelines for the conduct of party conferences.
''If anyone was found violating the guidelines, the polit Bureau can be approached,'' he added.
