Puducherry: Minister of State in the PMO V Narayanasamy on Sunday alleged that the Rangasamy led All India N R Congress government was taking Puducherry to the brink of economic collapse due to lack of proper planning and failure to request the Centre for grants and assistance.

Speaking to reporters here, he said Chief Minister N Rangasamy had not approached the Centre for grants and assistance for schemes and was instead blaming the Centre for not releasing requisite funds.

"There is no proper planning and the administration is in a state of inertia. The government is taking the union territory to the brink of economic collapse," Narayanasamy said.

He said he had received complaints of 'irregularities' in Public Sector Undertakings in Puducherry and that a probe would soon be conducted into it.

Narayanasamy also charged Rangasamy with indulging in political vendetta by sacking around 5,000 persons appointed to government posts during the previous Congress regime and demanded that all of them be reinstated.

Referring to the union budget, he said it is aimed at boosting economic growth and claimed it has earned enconiums from the public, analysts and economic experts.

He also praised some proposals for the union territory in the Railway budget which he said would put Puducherry prominently in the railway map of India, as the city would be linked to distant state capitals like Mumbai.
