Puducherry: AIADMK Tuesday staged a demonstration outside JIPMER hospital here, demanding withdrawal of user fees from patients by the hospital and restoration of free medical services.

Party`s local unit secretary A Anbalagan pointed out that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa had written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh yesterday bringing to his notice the hardship faced by patients from Puducherry and neighbouring districts of Tamil nadu due to collection of fees.

He also took strong exception to Puducherry Chief Minister N Rangasamy remaining silent on the issue and the `double speak` of Minister of State in PMO V Narayanasamy (elected to Lok Sabha from Puducherry) over it.
He said AIADMK would continue its protest until collection of fees was withdrawn.
