Elections are to be held in Puducherry this year. There is a Congress government here now. After the resignation of 3 MLAs, the Narayanasamy government has come into a minority.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi arrived here on Wednesday amidst the political turmoil in Puducherry. Elections are to be held in Puducherry this year. The Congress is the only government here. On the first day of the tour, Rahul met the fishermen.
During this, he said that the government has passed 3 anti-farmer bills. Farmers are the backbone of the country. You must be wondering why I am talking about farmers among fishermen. I consider you a farmer of the sea. If there can be a ministry of land farmers in Delhi, then why not farmers with sea.
The matter of a separate ministry for fishermen was raised by Rahul even before the Lok Sabha elections in 2019. Then he said that if the Congress forms the government at the Center, a separate ministry will be created for the fishermen. He made this statement in the National Fisherman Parliament in Thrissur, Kerala.
Center removes Kiran Bedi as LG
Meanwhile, in Puducherry, there are signs of major political vicissitudes ahead of the assembly elections. The Central Government has removed the Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi here. Currently, Telangana Governor Dr. Timilisai Sundararajan has been given additional charge of Puducherry. Earlier, on Monday and Tuesday, 4 MLAs including 2 ministers resigned from the Congress government headed by V Narayanasamy.
There have been reports of frequent disputes between Narayanasamy and Kiran Bedi. Narayanaswamy said on Wednesday that the last 4 years were not peaceful for our government. Kiran Bedi was creating problems by interfering in administration work every day. Now the BJP is trying to sabotage the legislators to topple our government. The resignation of 3 MLAs has been accepted. People know about the BJP’s game plan, they will answer them during the election.
