Puducherry, Jan 3 (UNI) PMK Legislators Anantharaman, Arul Murugan and Panneerselvam today picked up an argument with Education Minister M O H F Shajahan for not inviting Anantharaman while distributing financial assistance at Ariyankuppam, the constituency represented by Mr Anantharaman.

The Legislators met the Minister at his chamber after the Assembly session and raised the issue.

Later, talking to newspersons, Mr Anantharaman said he had submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister, seeking compensation to 21 fisherwomen, who had lost their dried fish in the recent rains.

Following his request, the Chief Minister sanctioned Rs 2,000 each to the fisherwomen.

Meanwhile, Mr Shajahan distributed the sanctioned amount in the presence of an elected local body representative from the area without inviting Mr Anantharaman.

Mr Anantharaman said the minister ignored him while he had taken the pain to get the assistance.

A complaint would be lodged with PMK founder leader S Ramadoss in this regard, he added.
