Puducherry: The Congress government in Puducherry fell after losing the confidence vote. Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanaswamy and ruling party MLAs walked out of the Assembly before the confidence vote. Later, the Speaker announced that the V Narayanaswamy government had lost its majority. Narayanaswamy then met the Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry and submitted his resignation.
Narayanaswamy (V Narayanaswamy) met the media ahead of the confidence vote and blamed the central government and the BJP. He said the BJP was trying to pursue a Hindi agenda in Puducherry, which was leading to a bilingual system in the Union Territory of Puducherry.
Nakayanaswamy alleged that Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi and the central government were playing politics and conspired politically to withhold funds for Puducherry. Nairanaswamy said that they had formed the government with the DMK and the independents and that victory in every subsequent election was with them, which meant that the people of Puducherry needed them.
Earlier, the newly appointed lieutenant governor, Tamilisai Soundararajan, had called for a vote of confidence today. Just before the vote of confidence, all the three MLAs who were with the government resigned and defended Narayanaswamy. A total of six MLAs have resigned from the Narayanaswamy government. With this, the strength of the Narayanaswamy government was reduced to 12. The opposition NR Congress-BJP alliance has 14 members.
