Puducherry, Jul 3 (UNI) CPI State Secretary and MLA Na Ra Kalainathan today alleged that the administration was totally paralysed due to the 'tussle' between Chief Minister N Rangasamy and the Ministers, with none of the welfare schemes, including old age pension, being implemented here.
Addressing a press conference, Mr Kalainathan claimed that the government was taking steps to hand over the women and child hospital and the Government Medical College, both under construction, to private parties and strongly condemned the move.
Stating that many out of the 116 petrol bunks were not paying sales tax, with the dues rising to Rs 30.89 crore, he urged the Civil Supplies and Sales Tax departments to take steps to collect the dues.
The MLA demanded a meeting of legislators to discuss the special component plan meant for the Adi Dravidar people and added that the officals were not cooperating with the Minister concerned in its implementation.
Stating that several problems such as admissions to plus one and medical and engineering colleges were prevailing, he said the CPI would organise agitations in the Union territory on July 11 and 12, while in the third week of the month, it would organise stirs along with the CPI(M).
CPI National Council member R Viswanathan, MLA, who was also present, said the Congress alone was responsible for the present ''administrative crisis'' in Puducherry.
