Puducherry, May 27: The opposition AIADMK on Friday, May 27 slammed the Congress for "delay" in forming the new ministry in Puducherry.

Addressing reporters here, AIADMK leader A.Anbalagan, who is among the four party legislators elected in the May 16 Assembly polls, claimed that "groupism in the Congress has been chiefly responsible for delay in finalising the CLP leader and in formation of the new ministry."

Anbalagan said if Congress did not form the ministry in the next two days, AIADMK would present a letter to newly appointed Lt Governor Kiran Bedi to intervene as "Puducherry cannot be deprived of an elected ministry."

He claimed that the Union Territory could have recorded a higher percentage than 84.08 per cent in the polls had the election machinery functioned properly.

Non-availability of voters' slips to a majority of voters was among the reasons responsible for the decline in percentage of polling and winning chances of candidates were also hit by the lack of slips, he claimed.
