Poor planning hit development: AIADMK
Opposition AIADMK Tuesday charged the Rangasamy led AINRC government with failing to implement all poll promises and mobilising funds for development of the Union Territory.
Puducherry: Opposition AIADMK Tuesday charged the Rangasamy led AINRC government with failing to implement all poll promises and mobilising funds for development of the Union Territory.
AIADMK`s local unit secretary A Anbalagan MLA said both the government and Congress led UPA at the Centre have done `injustice`.
While Chief Minister N Rangasamy had failed to realize taxes due from petrol bunk owners, industrialists and others, Minister of State in PMO V Narayanasamy had not taken steps to salvage Puducherry from the present financial crisis.
He scoffed at the Rs 1900 crore draft plan document prepared for fiscal 2013-14, to be placed before Deputy Chairman of Planning commission at Delhi on June 27, which he said was far less than that in the previous plan.
Anbalagan said projected estimate would normally be 10 to 15 per cent more than previous plan allocations. Against Rs 3,000 crore available in the previous plan, the plan document was just Rs 1 900 crore, he said.
He also charged private medical colleges with charging not less than Rs 45 lakh had been levied for students joining some colleges in MBBS stream under management quota. The 50 per cent quota for government sponsored candidates was a dream in admissions as no college had enforced this quota.
He also listed various sectors where the government had failed and urged the Chief Minister to quit office owning `inefficiency` to provide governance.
"The political tussle between the ruling AINRC and Congress is hitting developmental activities here`, he said and urged the Chief Minister to step down owning responsibility for failure to measure up to the expectations of the people, Anbalagan said.
