Opposition AIADMK today urged Chief Minister V Narayanasamy to intensify police vigil on the activities of usurers who “hold the poor and small businessmen to ransom in Puducherry.” Talking to newsmen here, the leader of the legislature wing of the AIADMK, A.Anbalagan, said police should function in strict adherence to law and bring to book usurers harassing borrowers.

Anbalagan said the recent incident at Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu where four members of a family set themselves ablaze over alleged harassment by a money lender should be taken as an eye opener by the Puducherry government. He also wanted strict enforcement of the law against display of banners and cutouts in public places. A special meeting of the legislators and leaders of all political parties should be convened to arrive at a consensus on making Puducherry “cut out and banner free”, he added.
