VCC Nagarajan, who had resigned from the post of AIADMK students wing president and from the primary membership of the party two days ago, joined the BJP along with his supporters at a function held here on Thursday night.
Meanwhile, the BJP on Friday demanded the resignation of Chief Minister V Narayanasamy as he is not paying attention to the welfare of the people and caring more to please the Congress party workers. In a statement here, Saminathan said Narayanasamy failed to take a clear step on the 7th Pay Commission recommendations and running the government with a bunch of lies. In this situation, the no-confidence motion moved against the Speaker by the Opposition should win and this will only be a proper solution for Puducherry, he added.
He charged that Narayanasamy failed to keep up his promise given to the teachers and non-teaching staffs of society colleges on implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations from April this year. By implementing the same only to the government college teachers and staff, he had ‘cheated’ the society college teachers, Saminathan added. Stating that 80 per cent of the students are studying in society colleges such as the Government Medical College and Pondicherry Engineering College, Saminathan urged the government to take immediate steps to resolve their issue in view of the future of the students.
