Puducherry’s political drama reached a culmination on Monday. The Congress-led V. Narayanasamy government fell due to failure inprovingthe majority in the assembly. On Monday, on the order of the Lt. Governor of Puducherry, V Narayanasamy had to prove his majority in the House. During this, the Chief Minister made serious allegations against the Central Government and former Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi in his speech. Congress and DMK MLAs walked out of the House even before voting, after which the speaker declared that the government had failed to prove its majority.
Narayanasamy said – “this is the murder of democracy”
Speaking to the media, V Narayanasamy said, “The 3 nominated members have no right to vote anywhere in the motion of confidence, the government’s opposition raised the issue after my speech was over, but the chairman did not agree. This is a murder of democracy, it does not happen anywhere in the country. The people of Puducherry will teach them a lesson.”
Narayanasamy’s pain after failing floor test
For the past few weeks, the continuous resignation of the Congress MLAs led the Narayanasamy government into trouble. The resignation of one of the three DMK MLAs on Sunday deepened the crisis. It was already believed that it is very difficult for the Narayanasamy government to prove the majority in the 33-member Assembly. Before the floor test in the assembly, Chief Minister V Narayanasamy’s speech was full of grief.
