The political crisis in the Union Territory Of Puducherry reached a tipping point on Monday as Puducherry Chief Minister resigns after losing majority in the Assembly.
The Congress Government in Puducherry led by Chief Minister V Narayansamy failed to prove its majority in the assembly on Monday.
Speaker of the legislative assembly V P Sivakozhundhu declared that the government has lost its majority and he adjourned the House.
The floor test had taken place as per directions of Lieutenant Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan days after Congress MLAs A John Kumar and Lakshmi Narayanan and DMK MLA K Venkatesan resigned from their Assembly membership.
Now while Former CM Narayansamy appears to be holding the Central government and former Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi responsible, netizens are laying the blame squarely with Rahul Gandhi.
While Narayansamy contends that Kiran Bedi and the BJP government had colluded with the Opposition and that the BJP led government had betrayed the people of Puducherry by not granting funds.
BJP leaders are retaliating by taking potshots at Rahul Gandhi saying Rahul Gandhi went to Puducherry and true to his Midas touch loses its government in the Union Territory.
Netizens too linked Gandhi’s visit to the subsequent resignation of Congress CM.
