Puducherry, Jun 28 (UNI) The Puducherry unit of the CPI(M) today urged the administration to convene an all-party meeting to discuss and enact a legislation to prevent the entry of multi-national companies and corporate giants into retail trade in the Union Territory.

Addressing a press conference here, CPI (M) state Secretary V Perumal said companies like Reliance should not be allowed to function in the Union Territory until the Legislation was enacted.

Alleging that the law and order situation was ''deteriorating'' in the Union Territory, Mr Perumal charged that murder accused were getting bail within 13 days with the ''help'' of some senior officials and police were filing FIRs in such a way that the culprits could easily escape the clutches of the law.

Citing reports that appeared in a section of the media that a senior Superintendent of Police here had amassed wealth of several crores of rupees, Mr Perumal demanded a CBI probe into it.

Demanding a thorough probe into the alleged irregularities in the police department, he charged that in most of the murder cases, the prime accused were let off.

Moreover, the cash and properties seized in theft and looting cases were not handed over to the parties concerned, he alleged.
