The Puducherry unit of the Communist Party of India has observed that the All India NR Congress-BJP government has lost its moral authority to rule the Union Territory following the loss of BJP candidate in the Puducherry Lok Sabha seat.

A resolution adopted at the CPI’s executive council meeting held here on Wednesday, July 10, 2024 said the people of UT gave a befitting reply to the AINRC-BJP government for its three years of misrule.

Party secretary A.M. Saleem in a release on Thursday, said the CPI and other Opposition parties have organised several protests during last three years against the government policies related to EWS reservation, electricity privatisation, closure of ration shops, delay in the revival of textile mills and failure to curb ganja menace. 

The AINRC-BJP government was also mired in scams. People of UT have realised the failures of the government and hence they voted against the BJP candidate in the Puducherry Lok Sabha seat, he said.

“The Central government also failed to provide any additional funds to Puducherry. Now, the ruling party members are fighting to hide their failures and for selfish interests. The government has lost the trust of people and moral right to govern the territory. In future, we will strive to oust the government and form a regime that protects the interest of people,” the secretary said.
