AINRC Govt 'anti-people': Narayanasamy
Union Minister of state for Prime Minister's Office V Narayansami today alleged that N R Congress Government in the union territory was 'anti-people and non-functioning'.
Addressing a press conference here, Mr Narayansami said the law and order situation had not improved and the government, which had stalled several schemes introduced by Congress Chief Minister V Vaithilingam, had failed to implement any of the poll promises given to the people.
He charged that the governemnt, which came to power with tall promises, had failed to remit tuition fees for students selected for professional courses through the centralised admission committee of the governemnt for the last two years. Since the Chief Minister had promised to remit the fees in colleges, the banks were not giving educational loan to the students putting them in a fix.
Mr Narayansami also charged that tourism development in the union territory had came to a halt with the introduction of Value Added Tax by Mr Rangasamy and the governemnt failed to yield the expected revenue from VAT.
He wondered whether the Chief Minister or ministers who had indulged in wrong propaganda that the Congress was stalling Central funds had sought funds for any schemes from the Centre.
He charged that none from the Puducherry administration attended the southern health ministers conference in Chennai in which certain funds were also allocated for the states.
He also said none from Puducherry attended the 'Anti-Corrouption initiative Conference' conducted by the CBI. Thus the Chief Minister had created a situation that there was no cooperation between the Centre and Puducherry administration which was a heavy loss for Puducherry, he said.
Mr Narayanasamy also charged that the administration was making efforts to postpone the panchayat elections here because of fear of defeat and recently the Puducherry ministers had urged the cheif minsiter to postpone the panchayat elections.
