Puducherry: Opposition AIADMK on Sunday charged Chief Minister N Rangasamy with "letting down" scheduled castes by diverting the funds meant for their welfare to other plans and programmes.

Talking to reporters here, secretary of local unit of party A Anbalagan, MLA, alleged that Rs 430.48 crore was earmarked under special component plan (SCP) meant for ameliorating the downtrodden sections in the annual plan 2011-12.

The Puducherry Administration had however diverted a major chunk of the funds to other programmes letting down the scheduled castes, he alleged.

Anbalagan said a white paper should be released on modalities adopted for implementation of welfare schemes and diversion of funds from SCP to other heads.
