Puducherry, Apr 23: The Puducherry police, Coastal police and the Coast Guards would be geared to thwart terrorism and extremism in the Union Territory, Chief Minister N Rangasamy told the Legislative Assembly today.

Replying to a question from PMC member K Lakshminarayanan, he said at present there was no threat to the Union Territory.

Refuting this, Mr Lakshminarayanan said he had got information that a senior intelligence officer had secretly visited Puducherry recently and discussed the security measures with the police officials here.

Replying to this, Mr Rangasamy said the forces in Puducherry would be geared up.

To another question, Mr Rangasamy said the Chief Secretary, who is also the Vigilance Commissioner here, would be advised not to proceed with complaints without proper address.

He said despite the direction from the Central Vigilance not to proceed with any annonymous/pseudonymous complaints, the Puducherry administration was taking steps to investigate such complaints, 70 of which were pending inquiry.

Several members, including Leader of the Opposition A M H Nazeem, pointed out that the inquiry on annonymous complaints were causing mental agony to officials and demanded that all the 70 cases be set aside.

DMK member Rajaraman urged the administration to take action against government officials, who amassed wealth disproportionate to their known sources of income.
