CM owes explanation on current fiscal crisis: DMK
Puducherry: Opposition DMK Thursday demanded that Chief Minister N Rangasamy led AINRC government release a white paper on the present 'financial crisis' facing it.
Convenor of Puducherry State committee of DMK, M A S Subramanian said in a release that diversion of funds from plan schemes to non plan programmes had been the chief cause of imbroglios in availability of funds.
Instead of framing plans according to available funds, the Chief Minister was now issuing statements that full statehood alone was the key to end the financial crisis, he said.
Subramanian said he was at a loss to understand the Chief Minister's reported view of there being political intervention in the administration and demanded that he specifically point out which department was affected.
He urged Rangasamy to bring out with a white paper on department wise allocation of funds in the budget he presented in July 2012, the quantum of money spent so far and funds diverted to non plan sector in the Union Territory.
