Puducherry, Sep 26 (UNI) AIADMK State Secretary A Anbazhagan MLA, today urged Lt Governor Govind Singh Gurjar to immediately convene a special session of the territorial assembly to discuss several pending issues here.
Talking to newspersons here, Mr Anbazhagan said the decision to start the Kamaraj Government Medical College, was taken only after discussing it in the territorial assembly.
In case of any setback, it should be discussed by all and problems sorted out, as the cabinet decision to hand it over to the ESI Corporation could not be accepted, he said, adding that it should remain as the Puducherry Government Medical College.
He said, initially there will be tall promises, such as 50 per cent seats for the Government. However, in due course, the Government would be informed that the ESIC Act would not permit the provision of 50 per cent seats to the Government. The same thing was witnessed in the case of private medical colleges here, which started challenging the Government after obtaining Deemed University status, he added.
He said agricultural lands were being purchased at a low cost under the pretext of tourism development and were sold to people from other states, which helped the intrusion of rowdy elements into the Union Territory. Union Minister V Narayansamy had stated earlier that the rowdies in Tamil Nadu were functioning from Puducherry by keeping the Union Territory as their base.
This matter was not discussed in yesterday's review meeting to assess the law and order situation, he said and added that the Government should get in touch with Mr Narayansamy, who may be having evidences for rowdy movements here, as even the ruling party was also demanding the introduction of 'Goondas Act'.
To discuss and sort out all these issues, Mr Gurjar should immediately convene a special session of the territorial assembly and should ensure that it lasts for a minimum of ten days, he added.
