Even as a group of five MLAs of AINRC held a secret meeting here to express their displeasure over the slow pace of development, Chief Minister N. Rangasamy on Saturday downplayed the development.
A group of five MLAs, including M. Vaidhyanathan, M. Kalyanasundaram, Angalan and Nehru, met at the office of Mr. Vaidhyanathan, who is the Parliamentary Secretary of the Chief Minister.
They reportedly discussed the snail pace of development schemes in their respective constituencies.
When the meeting was on, they received an invitation from Speaker of the Assembly V. Sabapathy for negotiation.
Subsequently, the MLAs also met the Chief Minister at his residence.
Mr. Rangasamy, who gave a patient hearing to them, promised to take care of their grievances, said sources close to him.
Emerging from the meeting, Mr. Nehru said they had discussed various demands of people.
There was nothing special in it.
When asked about the secret meeting of a section of MLAs, Mr. Rangasamy said it was not a problem.
“There is no difference of opinion with the Lt. Governor also. Both of us are taking steps to run the government smoothly,” he said.
On law and order, the Chief Minister said several steps were being taken to improve the situation.
