Anbazhagan demanded that stringent action be initiated against government servants who worked for the NR Congress as well as the Congress parties here. Presently, such persons are being identified in Bahour constituency only. It should be extended to all constituencies and those worked for both the N R Congress and Congress be identified and action initiated in an impartial manner.
