Narayanasamy said the Centre had already reduced Jammu and Kashmir from being a state to a Union Territory and asked the people to ensure that the Congress-led alliance was elected to power in the 2021 Assembly polls also.

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi is turning his eyes towards Puducherry and would dismantle the separate status of Puducherry and merge it with neighbouring states," Narayanasamy claimed, addressing the 136th foundation day celebrations of the Congress.

Puducherry would face a situation of being deprived of its separate status as a Union Territory and there is need for caution and care on the part of party workers and people in general, he said.

"We will not remain silent spectators and would even sacrifice our lives to protect the separate status of Puducherry," he said.
