The Narayanasamy government of Congress, which came in a minority in Puducherry, has to prove its majority today. The political crisis has deepened after the resignation of another MLA in Puducherry on Sunday. The Narayanasamy government of the Congress is now completely in the minority. Because on Sunday, just before the floor test, another Congress MLA has resigned from the party.
Recently, four MLAs had resigned, now with the resignation of another Congress MLA Laxminarayan, the total number has reached five. At the same time, the DMK MLA with alliance also resigned. After the resignation of Congress MLA K. Laxminarayanan and DMK MLA Venkatesan, the number of MLAs from the Congress-DMK alliance in the 33-member assembly has come down to 11, while the opposition parties have 14 MLAs. Lakshminarayanan and Venkatesan submitted their resignations to Assembly Speaker VP Sivakolundhu at his residence.
After the resignation, Laxminarayanan told reporters, “The Narayanasamy-led government has lost a majority.” Laxminarayanan said he has also resigned from the membership of the party. Venkatesan said that he has only resigned from the post of MLA and he will remain a part of the DMK.
Recently, Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi was relieved of responsibility and Telangana Governor Tamilisai Saundarajan has been given additional responsibility of Puducherry. If Narayanasamy fails to prove his majority today, the Congress government in Puducherry will fall and if this happens then President’s rule will be imposed here. Assembly elections are to be held here in the coming months and in such a situation, the Congress will not want the assembly elections to be held under President’s rule.
