Performance of Puducherry government praised
Views of the civil society cannot substitute for government policy on Maoism, and it is the government that makes the policy, not the civil society, said Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram here on Saturday.
On the allegations of attacks on fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy, Mr. Chidambaram said that there had been only one casualty so far, and that both the parties should “stick to their boundaries.”
The Home Minister endorsed the performance of the Congress government in Puducherry.
To a question on the demand for a JPC probe into the 2G spectrum scam, he said: “The government has refused the Opposition demand for JPC probe. The Opposition will not accept the government's refusal and, in turn, the government will not accept the Opposition's position.”
