DMK demands white paper
DMK Puducherry unit convenor Dr M A S Subramanian today demanded a white paper on the financial crisis in the union territory.
In a statement here today, Dr Subramanian said that when there were reports of financial crisis, the Chief Minister used to maintain that statehood for Puducherry will help to streamline the administration and also levell charges of intervention in the administration. The Chief Minister should specifically state in which all departments,there is intervention and which all schemes could not be proceeded with due to intervention.Lack of planning and hasty announcement of schemes led to the financial crisis, he charged.
Dr Subramanian said that the Chief Minister himself should shoulder responsibility for the administrative lapses following the financial crisis. He also wanted the Chief Minister to make clear what measures he had taken to get full statehood for Puducherry
