'Ready to cooperate if LG functions within guidelines' : CM

Puducherry, Aug 11(UNI) Puducherry chief Minister V Narayansamy on Saturday said that 'he is ready to cooperate with Lt.Governor Kiran Bedi' if she functions within the framework of guidelines.

Talking to news persons here, Mr Narayanasamy wondered what Ms Bedi did for the development of the Union Territory.

A Lt.Governor should not stall people's welfare schemes as it is the duty of an elected government to fulfill their needs, Mr Narayansamy said, alleging the LT Governor is trying to stall the free rice scheme and centac assistance scheme.

He said on August 5, at a press conference, he had stated that the officers need not follow the directions of the Lt.Governor since, she do not enjoy any special powers. To this the LG had tweeted that Mr Narayanasamy is not cooperating for the development of the union territory, the Chief Minister said and added that he had written a letter to her on August 10.

In the copy of the letter provided to the media, the chief minister said that the Lt.Governor have referred to para 180 of the Supreme Court judgement in the Kejriwal-LG standoff case in Delhi.

He said the Supreme Court made the observation that article 239A is applicable to Puducherry and therefore it is different from Article 239AA which is applicable to NCT Dehi.

The fundamental principles decided by the Constitution Bench of the Top Court in the judgement was that the administrator has to act on the aid and advice of the Council of Ministers, the administrator has no independent powers in the administration, council of minister’s decision is final, the administrator should not be an obstructionist and on flimsy grounds matters should not be referred to the President of India.
