On Monday, Former Puducherry Chief Minister, V Narayanasamy challenged Union Home Minister Amit Shah to prove allegations of corruption which he made against him at a rally. The ex-CM also threatened to file a defamation case against the Union Minister. 

The Congress leader said, “Home minister Amit Shah said that the PM sent ₹15,000 crores to Puducherry and Narayanasamy took a cut and gave part of the money to Gandhi’s family. It’s a very serious allegation against me. I challenge him to prove it.” Further, the Minister said that if Shah does not prove the allegations made by him, then he needs to apologize to the Nation and the people of Puducherry. He further said that if Shah fails to do so, then he will be filing a defamation case against him for the false allegations to tarnish his image and that of the Gandhi family.  

While addressing a rally in Puducherry, the Union Home Minister had accused Narayanasamy of corruption and the Gandhi family to have received money from the ex-Tamil Nadu Chief Minister. He also spoke about several development projects launched by the Prime Minister and said the projects will be benefiting the people of Puducherry.

Shah during the rally gave special attention to the Union Territories fisherman. Shah stated that in the Union Budget 2021-22, the Government had announced Rs 20,000 crore to improve the fisheries infrastructure of the community. Shah added, “Puducherry will reap the maximum benefit from this scheme.”

On February 22, ahead of the floor test ordered by the Lieutenant Governor, Narayanasamy resigned as the Chief Minister. He also lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the chaotic situation in Puducherry and held Shah to be responsible for the toppling of the Government.

As per the notification of the Union Home Ministry, on 23rd February, President Ram Nath Kovind imposed the President’s rule in Puducherry after the Chief Minister’s resignation. As per the election schedule announced by the Election Commission of India (ECI), polling for 30 assembly seats in Puducherry will be held on April 6.
