Puducherry, Apr 11 (UNI) The registration of cases against ministers in the Union Territory came in for heated arguments in the territorial Assembly today.
While participating in the debate on demand for grants for various departments, PMK member Anantharaman said the cases registered against the two ministers and a person approaching the court, to register criminal cases against Chief Minister N Rangasamy yesterday was not a fair trend. If there were any complaints against the Chief Minister or ministers, an enquiry commission should be constituted, which should enquire and recommend action, he demanded.
Intercepting Anantharaman DMK member S P Sivakuamr said if the Ministers and Chief Minister were united, this situation would not have arisen.
He said Mr Rangasamy had not indulged in any corruption or accepted any bribe. Instead, he did a good thing by regularising 96 part time workers. He asked if there was anything wrong in it, and said since Independence all the Chief Minsiters had done the same thing for their constituencies. If cases were registered for a good deed who will come forward to do the good.
PMC member K Lakshminarayanan intervened and said it was not the question of 96 people, but the case of 1.5 lakh unemployed youth.
Welfare Minister M Kandasamy rose to say that cases were registered against two Ministers and none of the officials were signing those files forwarded to them. With members expressing their views on the issue, Speaker R Radhakrishnan intervened and said the members could not speak about the functioning of the court in the House and passed on to other businesses.
