Puducherry: Puducherry Chief Minister V
Vaithilingam on Monday said "there is no necessity" for Lt
Governor Iqbal Singh to step down from his post for his
alleged links with suspected money launderer Hasan Ali Khan.



Talking to reporters here after a meeting with the
Governor, Vaithilingam said Enforcement Directorate has been
given permission by the Prime Minister`s Office to question
Singh over the issue of his recommendation for issuing
passport expeditiously to Khan.
"The ED would do necessary statutory follow up," he said,
adding, in these circumstances why should Singh resign as he
was only facing allegations.
He denied allegations that the administration had favoured
a trust, reportedly linked to Singh for starting a medical
college in the union territory.



"The administration had not allotted any land to the trust
for starting medical college nor has it granted funds or
esssentiality certificate to it, Vaithilingam said.
