Puducherry: The opposition AIADMK has charged the
V Vaithilingam led Congress government here with not using
funds earmarked under Special component plan meant for
scheduled castes.

The AIADMK Puducherry unit Secretary A.Anbalagan, MLA,
told newsmen here today that around Rs 400 crore was earmarked
under the SCP for the scheduled castes which constituted
around 20 per cent of the total budgetary allocations for the
current fiscal.

He alleged no steps were taken to use the funds to develop
infrastructure and ameliorate the lot of the scheduled castes.
