Chennai : DMK President M.K.Stalin on Thursday charged the BJP with using Governor as party functionaries. Extending support to Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy in his fight against governor Kiran Bedi, Stalin said “Lt Governor being the reason for the abnormal political situation in Puducherry is unconstitutional.”
The Puducherry CM is sitting on a dharna outside the residence of the Governor for the second say on Thursday.
“This is an example of the BJP government converting Governors as their party General Secretaries. Once again, the question about the need for the Governor post arises,” Stalin said.
Narayanasamy began his protest on Wednesday, wearing a black shirt and black dhoti. He was protesting against Bedi for not permitting the implementation of his government’s welfare schemes.
BJP leaders too joined the protest sit in. The protesting leaders slept outside the governor’s residence on a thick plastic sheet.
