Vaithilingam blames pondy CM for financial crisis
Stating that the "failure" of Chief Minister N Rangasamy to give proper directions to the officials of the territorial administration led to the present financial crisis, Leader of the Opposition and former chief minister V Vaithilingam suggested that an open discussion between the Chief Minister and the officials was necessary to tide over the situation.
Addressing a press conference here today, Mr Vaithilingam said it was a usual practice of the opposition to blame the Centre "to hide their own inabilities." Similarly, Mr Rangasamy also is blaming the Centre that it is not giving funds, though the Centre had given everything sought by the government here.
Mr Vaithilingam wondered how the Chief Minister, who is going on saying that there are no funds had given Rs 25 crore to the contractor of the Women and Children Hospital when he went for arbitration. This Rs 25 crores is 50 per cent of the total cost of the project,he added.
