The AIADMK on Tuesday demanded the resignation of Chief Minister N Rangasamy alleging that he had failed to implement development schemes for the last two years.  

Addressing a news conference here on Tuesday, AIADMK state secretary A Anbazhagan pointed out that the Union Territory was neither seeing any welfare measures nor development activities. None of the promises given in the AINRC’s election manifesto or in the budget or  on the floor of the Assembly were being fulfilled. Neither were there any indications of improvement in the scenario.

While all the other states have planned the schemes and attended the Planning Commission meetings seeking higher allocation, Rangasamy had cut down the plan allocation substantially compared to the previous year. The government is to seek Rs 1,900 crore which is Rs 1,100 crore less than last year, claimed Anbazhagan.

If finance is a problem, the government should have delved on ways and means to enhance the revenue as well as recovered the arrears of Rs 800 crore pending payment, instead of cutting down on welfare and development, he added. 

The AIADMK leader demanded that Rangasamy resign owning moral responsibility for the state of affairs.
