The AIADMK in Puducherry Tuesday charged Chief Minister V Narayanasamy with “intimidating” officials to implement government orders lest they should face contempt of court proceedings. Addressing reporters here, the AIADMK legislature wing leader A Anbalagan said the Chief Minister was adopting “intimidatory tactics” after the Madras High Court had held that Lt Governor Kiran Bedi “cannot interfere” in the day-to-day affairs of the elected government of the Union Territory. Anbalagan also termed as “amusing and untenablem” the Chief Minister’s stand that Lt Governor Kiran Bedi could not go on appeal against the High Court order.

“It is the right of any individual to go on appeal and the stand of the Chief Minister that Lt Governor could not go on appeal without prior concurrence of the government is utterly unacceptable and amusing.” In the wake of the order of the High Court the Chief Minister had been telling officials that they would face contempt proceedings if they did not fall in line with the decisions of the government, he said adding “this is a clear case of intimidating the officials.”
