Puducherry | The AIADMK in Puducherry today asked the V Narayanasamy led Congress Ministry to seek vote of confidence on the floor of the assembly while claiming that factionalism within that party had come to the fore ever since the list of new ministers was released.
A Congress legislator had boycotted the swearingin ceremony yesterday, which stands testimony to the fact that intraparty feud had cropped up in the Congress, AIADMK legislative wing leader A Anbazhagan told reporters here without mentioning the legislator’s name.
He urged the Lt Governor to intervene and convene a session of the House and direct Chief Minister Narayanasamy to prove majority on the floor of the House. AIADMK, on its part, would table a motion to urge the government to prove its majority either on the opening day of the session of the House or on subsequent days.
Anbazhagan also expressed shock over the delay in induction of newly elected members. We are not able to contact officials as elected legislators pending induction, as members of the House to seek redressal of public grievances, he said. AIADMK has four members in the opposition block.
The AIADMK leader asked the Congress government to deliver on its promises in the party poll manifesto without ‘hoodwinking’ the people.
