Union Cabinet approves dissolution of Puducherry assembly
New Delhi, Feb 24: The Union Cabinet today approved the dissolution of the Puducherry legislative assembly.
The decision was taken after the Congress government in Puducherry fell. V Narayanswamy's government fell to a minority after five MLAs from the Congress and its ally, the DMK resigned.
Following the Cabinet meeting, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said that the CM has resigned and none have staked a claim to form the government. Hence the LG recommended suspending the 14th assembly.
Now our approval will be sent to the President and after his approval, the Assembly will stand dissolved, Javadekar also said.
