After a delegation of parliamentarians expressed dissatisfaction over the slow pace of work under the Member of Parliament Local Area Development scheme (MPLADS). Union Minister of State for PMO, V Narayanasamy, had asked the officials concerned to expedite the works.
Naryanasamy said the parliamentary delegation, which inspected various sites and reviewed the projects undertaken using funds from the MPLAD scheme, had expressed dissatisfaction over the slow pace of work executed by the UT administration.
It may be recalled that a delegation of parliamentarians, led by A K S Vijayan, inspected the sites and held a review meeting on the projects under the MPLAD scheme in May this year.
Narayanasamy said he had asked the officials to completely utilise the funds earmarked under the scheme, as the amount allotted for 2013-14 would be released only after the previously allotted amount has been exhausted.
'CM a puppet'
Union Minister said that the Chief Minister Rangasamy has become a puppet at the hands of the management of private medical colleges.
He further charged Rangasamy of favouring the private colleges who have not surrendered 50 per cent seats for CENTAC quota as per the agreement for setting up medical institutions.
He further urged the government to cancel the recognition of the colleges who have breached the agreement.
