BJP slams Pondy CM for criticising Bedi

P V Saminathan

Puducherry: The BJP Monday flayed Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy for allegedly being critical of the Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi instead of focusing on the development of the union territory.

BJP’s local unit president P V Saminathan, an MLA, said in a statement here that “such a tendency to blame Bedi and the central government shows that Narayanasamy has lost his capacity to provide good governance.”

Saminathan flayed Narayansamy for the alleged delay in giving salaries and allowance to workers in public sector undertakings and said measures have not been taken to open the Deepavali special bazaar or distribute free garments to school children.

The BJP MLA claimed welfare minister M Kandasamy has been appreciating the Lt Governor while the Chief Minister has been criticising her thereby hindering the union territory’s development.
