CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president G.K. Vasan on Monday called upon the State Government not to move the Supreme Court to challenge the recent order of the Madras High Court, ordering a CBI probe into the leak of question paper for selection of police constables.
"They [The State Government] should cooperate with the CBI in expediting the conduct of the enquiry," Mr. Vasan told mediapersons at Satyamurti Bhavan, the TNCC headquarters here.
Hardship to people
As regards the hardship to flood-hit people, the Congress leader said it could have been averted had the Government taken adequate precautionary steps.
Asked about the charge made in certain quarters that certain communities were being neglected by the Congress, Mr. Vasan said the party never differentiated people on the basis of caste, creed or religion.
Reward for party men
"Those who worked hard for the party will soon be rewarded," he said.
Asked whether he expected inclusion of any more representative from Tamil Nadu into the Union Cabinet, the TNCC leader said such decisions would be taken by Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Later, Mr. Vasan, along with Congress leaders S.G. Vinayagamoorthy and D. Sudarsanam, Members of Legislative Assembly, Peter Alphonse, M. Krishnaswamy and R. Anbarasu, former Members of Parliament, paid homage to Indira Gandhi on her 21st death anniversary.
The TNCC president also administered a pledge on the occasion.
