NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday addressing an election rally in Puducherry trained his guns at the Congress party and said that the “high command” government failed to develop the Union territory and looted the people.
“In a long list of non-performing Congress governments”, the PM said that the previous Puducherry government had a “special place” as the “Delhi high command government of Puducherry” failed on all fronts.
“Take any sector – education, filling of medical seats, the welfare of SC-STs, there was only loot,”said the PM.
Visiting the UT ahead of April 6 voting day in the assembly elections, PM Modi said that the MLAs of the Congress party have openly talked about corruption in the UT.
“MLAs belonging to Congress party were openly talking about corruption, directly linked to the family of the former chief minister,” said Modi.

This is PM Modi’s second visit to the UT ahead of the April 6 voting day. Assembly election in Puducherry will be held in a single phase.

This is the Prime Minister’s second visit to Puducherry to campaign for the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) candidates after having addressed a poll rally here on February 25 when he had unveiled several Centre-sponsored development projects.
Highlights from PM Modi’s address in Puducherry:
*In the long list of non-performing Congress governments over the years, the previous Puducherry government has a special place. The ‘high command’ government of Puducherry failed on all fronts.

All India NR Congress (AINRC)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is contesting 16 of 30 constituencies in Puducherry assembly elections this year.

* I have had a reasonably long experience in politics. I have seen many elections. But, the Puducherry election 2021 is unique. Do you know why? Because the sitting chief minister has not been given a ticket.
* So many years of loyalty. Lifting slippers of his leader. Doing wrong translations to impress his leader. Still, no ticket! This clearly shows how much of a disaster his government has turned out to be.
* NDA will work to make Best Puducherry. By Best I mean: Business Hub. Education Hub. Spiritual Hub. Tourism Hub.

* When I think of Puducherry I think about Bharathiyar. I think about Sri Aurobindo. I think about Sithanda Swamy and Thollaikkathu Siddhar.
* I bow in reverence to the Manakula Vinayagar Swamy Temple and the Sreemath Guru Sithanandha Swamigal Devasthanam.
