AIADMK urges Bedi to ensure law and order


The opposition AIADMK has called upon the Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi to intervene and ensure maintenance of law and order in Puducherry.

Referring to the recent incidents of crime, AIADMK Legislature party leader A. Anbalagan told reporters that instead of concentrating on virtually flimsy issues, Ms. Bedi must concentrate on law and order in the larger interest of the people.

He said that while on the one hand the Chief Minister V. Narayanasamy was projecting various issues, on the other hand the Lt. Governor was unveiling her policies and consequently both of them are only playing a drama without taking any steps.

‘Growth rate poor’

Ms. Bedi must concentrate on procuring Statehood for Puducherry, including the Union Territory in the Central Finance Commission, working towards promotion of industries and reopening of textile mills.

The growth rate in Puducherry was very poor and immediate steps must be taken to put an end to this predicament.

Charging that the Chief Minister had totally failed on various fronts, Mr. Anbalagan said that instead of bringing relief to the people, he was going to head a demonstration in Delhi seeking Statehood for the Union Territory.

The AIADMK is not against Statehood but there should be a coordinated approach on the part of the Chief Minister.

Different stand

While in Tamil Nadu Pongal gift hampers were available to all families, Ms. Bedi was taking an amusing stand that only BPL families were eligible for the gift hampers, Mr. Anbalagan added.
