PUDUCHERRY: Former Union Minister V Narayansamy on Friday demanded a CBI probe into the Centac admission scam.
In a statement here, Narayansamy said the shifting of the case to the CB-CID was just an eye wash and alleged that administration was trying to hide facts in the case.
He alleged that the admission of students from Tamil Nadu through fake residential certificates was done by bribing some officials and said some employees from the office of the Chief Minister N Rangasamy had also acted as agents in the fraud.
He added that the Puducherry administration had also not paid the salary to around 4,000 employees in various government boards and corporations, including PASIC and PAPSCO, ranging from five to 20 months and their families were suffering, forcing the employees to organise agitations. With Deepavali approaching, the government has not taken any initiative to pay them bonus either, while in other States, the bonus for public sector undertakings was announced and disbursed. He demanded immediate payment of salary and bonus .
Also, Narayanasamy said the commodities purchased by PAPSCO for Deepavali were of sub-standard quality after getting huge amount as commission and urged the Lieutenant Governor A K Singh to order an enquiry against PAPSCO officials, who had allegedly indulged in this act.
He took strong exception to the unscheduled power cut as well.
