Puducherry, Mar 23 (UNI) AICC General Secretary V Narayansamy, MP, today demanded a judicial inquiry into the circumstances leading to the filing of cases against the Territorial Ministers and the 'people behind it,'saying the act was 'politically motivated.' Addressing the press here, Mr Narayansamy said Puducherry police was acting in a partisan manner leaving criminals and registering cases against Ministers due to some vested interests.' To safeguard themselves and malign the Congress Government here, a section was throwing blame on the Ministers. Since the police was not functioning as per law, complaints would be submitted directly before the Prime Minister and the Union Home Minister seeking action against the police.
The case against Health Minister E Valsaraj had to be investigated by the Registrar of Co-operative Societies. The one against Education Minister M O H F Shajahan was a civil case registered as criminal case, he claimed.
He said the Ministers had the strength and courage to face any political situation. However, he kept away from interfering in the matter of former Welfare Minister P Angalan since it concerned domestic problem.
On demand by CPI State Secretary Na Ra Kalainathan seeking the resignation of the Ministers and facing inquiry, Mr Narayansamy said the matter had been brought to the notice of CPI National Secretary D Raja, who assured us to take action.
