Continuation of AIADMK government not good for Tamil Nadu: MK Stalin

The administration is stagnating, and there is no industrial growth.

CHENNAI: Charging the state ministers with forgetting their responsibilities and focusing on intra-party problems leading to paralysis in state administration, leader of Opposition M.K. Stalin on Tuesday asserted that the continuation of the present government is not good for people and welfare of Tamil Nadu. Governor Ch. Vidyasagar Rao should interfere and direct the government to convene the Assembly for the taking up of discussion on demands for grants to the ministries and activate the administration to protect people's welfare, he demanded, in a statement here.

"At a time when Chennai is facing drinking water problems, the Chief Minister has no time to meet his Andhra Pradesh counterpart to get water. The budget was tabled on March 16, but the Assembly had not been convened for discussion on demands for grants to various departments. Department-wise schemes have not been approved in the Assembly and it is not known how they are going to implement the schemes," Stalin said. The administration is stagnating, and there is no industrial growth leading to fall in economic development and progress of the state, he added.

The Chief Minister has not replied to the announcement of the Centre that Neet would be compulsory in Tamil Nadu and he has not reacted to the Centre's move to take the powers of the state to identify the backward communities for reservation. Palanisami is struggling to stay in power and the ministers are wandering here and there unable to take a decision on supporting any group. At such a situation, police officers are not behaving with responsibility to people and government officials do not have concern for people, Stalin said and added that no one is concerned about Tamil Nadu welfare.

The state is witnessing numerous protests for the closure of Tasmac shops, seeking drinking water and to protect the families of farmers who committed suicide. "There is a feeling that no democratic government is in place to listen to the grievances of people and the Chief Minister is refusing to meet the Tamil Nadu farmers protesting in Delhi for the last 36 days".
