The Cabinet’s approval has come in the wake of recommendations by Governor Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan for the President’s rule for the 7th time in the union territory.

It may be recalled, the Narayana Swamy led-Congress government has collapsed recently with four of his cabinet colleagues resigning for their posts. However, the Congress leader failed to muster the support on the floor of the house and resigned even before the voting commences following which Governor Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan has recommended for the President’s rule in Puducherry.
