Puducherry: Opposition AIADMK on Wednesday charged Minister of State in PMO V Narayanasamy with 'misusing' a railway function for that party's political propaganda.

AIADMK's local unit secretary A Anbalagan said the function yesterday in which union Railway Minister Mallikarjun Kharge flagged off the Puducherry-Tirupati weekly express gained the colour of a congress meet as party workers not involved in any official capacity were seated at the dais.

Narayanasamy 'misused' the function on the basis of his position as Central Minister, he alleged.

He said a detailed petition would be presented to President Pranab Mukherjee in this regard.

Anbalagan also wanted Lt Governor Virendra Kataria to play a pro-active role in developing Puducherry. As chairman of the Planning Board, he should hold a meeting to review working of various schemes and also the government's fund position, he said.
