|Seeks details of schemes implemented in Rangasamy’s constituency|
PUDUCHERRY: Continuing his tirade against Chief Minister N. Rangasamy, All-India Congress Committee general secretary V. Narayanasamy has sought particulars of schemes implemented in the Thattanchavady constituency, represented by the Chief Minister.
He wrote to Chief Secretary Rakesh Bihari on December 13 urging him to provide details of the number of people from Thattanchavady who got government jobs from 2001 to 2007.
The letter, a copy of which was leaked to the media, sought details about funds allocated by the Puducherry Government for schemes taken up at Thattanchavady and funds allocated under the Perunthalaivar Kamaraj Housing Scheme to the constituency.
Mr. Narayanasamy also demanded a list of government institutions established in the constituency and funds allocated for them during the same period. He sought to know the total amount distributed from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund to people in Thattanchavady. He also urged the Chief Secretary to furnish details of the beneficiaries of the relief fund from other constituencies.
Mr. Narayanasamy has been critical of the Chief Minister’s style of functioning and accuses him of favouring his constituency while implementing welfare schemes and providing government jobs.
The release of the letter comes soon after Pradesh Congress Committee chief P. Shanmugam urged party leaders to take up their grievances only through the party forum. He had warned those indulging in indiscipline of stern action.
