The President Rule was imposed in the Union Territory on February 24 after Union Cabinet approved the proposal sent by the Puducherry LG. The proposal was made days after the Congress-led government in the union territory lost power during a vote of confidence. Announcing the Cabinet decision, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar had said that the decision was taken as no party claimed to form a government in Puducherry following the resignation of the chief minister there. After the President’s assent, the assembly will get dissolved, while adding that further necessary steps for administrative work in Puducherry would be taken soon, informed Javadekar.
Senior BJP leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah will address public meetings in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry on Sunday. Shah will leave for Tamil Nadu tomorrow and is scheduled to hold a public meeting in Karaikal in Puducherry on Sunday morning, followed by a ‘Vijay Sankalp Rally’ in Janakipuram in Villupuram district in Tamil Nadu, according to the schedule released by his office.
