With the Congress-led government losing power after not being able to prove themselves, a request to enforce the President’s Rule in Union Territories was accepted by the Union Cabinet on Wednesday. So Puducherry would be under president’s rule now.
After most of the MLAs withdrew from the Assembly of the Coalition of Congress-DMK alliance in UT lost a vote of confidence.
The Puducherry CM V Narayanasamy declared its renunciation shortly after the floor test in the Assembly.
The Union Minister Prakash Javadekar declared on Wednesday that the decision by the cables concerning the UT’s imposition of the President’s rule was taken because, after the resignation of the Chief Minister in that area, no party claimed to form any government at Puduccherry.
Subsequently, the Lieutenant Governor in Puducherry recommended the Rule of the President, and the Union Cabinet committed to that Rule, said the Minister.
Javadekar said after the assent of the President, the Assembly would be disbanded, adding that additional measures required to perform administrative activities in Puducherry would soon be taken.
He also claimed that soon after the election commission declares the dates of the elections there, along with four States, the model code of conduct will come into effect.
