Why did you do this:

e2fsck -B 4096 -n -b 32768 /dev/VG00/lvvar


If the partition is full, you need to delete some log files and probably amend the logratotate scripts to purge more frequently.

I have removed few files from the log folder. And I have executed the logrotate. but it didnot change.

You need to look at your log dirs carefully and figure out which programs are primarily responsible for filling the disk and amend (change) the relevant logrotate scripts to remove those files more frequently.
eg my system has the current log, plus the 4 previous logs for a given service. In that case you'd want to change it to eg current plus previous 3.
