Accusing the BJP of plotting to convey down his authorities, V Narayanasamy stated the occasion, which didn’t win a single seat of the 30 they contested within the 2016 Assembly polls, “always wanted to rule Puducherry by proxy”.
Speaking to The Indian Express at his residence after he and his Council of Ministers submitted their resignations to L-G Tamilisai Soundararajan, Narayanasamy stated he was a “happy man” since he had run a authorities for 5 years regardless of hurdles put up by the Opposition.
“I am a happy man… we completed five years. We took the oath of office in 2016. I ran the government for six months and then, I contested an election. After winning that, the BJP started targeting me… NR Congress and AIADMK tried to topple the government. I thwarted all their game plan with the support of my team,” he stated.
Accusing former L-G Kiran Bedi of interfering within the day-to-day affairs of the federal government and attempting to run a parallel authorities by holding evaluate conferences of departments, he stated he “fought her every single day”.
“Ultimately, we succeeded when she was thrown out of Puducherry last week, days after we met the President with a demand to recall her. The new L-G (Tamilisai Soundararajan) is also acting in a biased manner. We had almost completed our tenure when they toppled the government today… We will fight against the BJP,” he stated.
When requested concerning the logic behind ‘toppling’ a authorities simply earlier than the polls, he stated the BJP needed to make sure that the Congress was not ruling Puducherry through the election. “They always wanted to rule Puducherry by proxy,” he stated.
On his trusted aides and senior ministers being poached by rival events, Narayanasamy stated they have been being lured by the BJP by way of false guarantees. “The BJP has been using investigating agencies to lure people in Puducherry, like in other states where they toppled governments… Why didn’t they (MLAs) do this in the last five years? They decided to join the BJP because the term of the government was going to end and because it was lucrative,” he stated, referring to 5 of the seven MLAs who resigned to hitch the BJP.
When requested if he noticed the disaster coming, Narayanasamy stated he knew concerning the BJP’s recreation plan three months in the past. “I tried to give the MLAs confidence. But you cannot stop greedy people,” he stated.
Dismissing the fees made by Narayanasamy, V Saminathan, BJP state president and one of many nominated MLAs, stated, “The BJP has no role to play in the fall of this government. It was a highly corrupt government that collapsed on its own due to mismanagement and poor governance. If BJP was the reason, why did their health minister and senior leader Malladi Krishna Rao resign? Why did they disqualify an MLA last year itself? This government lost the majority because it was a failure.”
