Puducherry Chief Minister V Vaithilingam on Wednesday alleged that Anbumani Ramadoss had turned down the plea for sanction of funds for the government's proposed medical college here and termed it as a "negative stand."
The construction work of buildings for the college, which had come up half way had been abandoned for want of money, he said, while addressing presspersons here.
He said he had requested Anbumani Ramadoss when he was Union Health Minister to run the Puducherry government sponsored medical college as a Central undertaking. "Even this plea did not find favour with him," he said.
Vaithilingam said it was 'not correct' on the part of the PMK Lok Sabha candidate M Ramadoss and also Anbumani to charge that Puducherry administration was responsible for the "setback in the construction of the buildings for the college."
Meanwhile, refuting PMK's allegations that he had not done anything for the Unnion Territory during the last 18 years as an MP in Rajya Sabha, Congress Lok Sabha nominee V Narayanasamy said "I have already shown the documents containing my initiatives in Parliament for development of Puducherry. Let my opponents and critics first read the documents and then make allegations against me."
Narayanasamy alleged that Anbumani and Ramadoss were taking credit for the sanction of funds for development of JIPMER.
