"I get the positive signals that Centre would assist Puducherry to meet its commitments in developmental programmes.
It is, however, the duty of the Centre to help Puducherry as it is our right to claim for funds," he said.He hit out at the previous All India N Rangasamy Congress government led by N Rangasamy, alleging that various public sectors had suffered losses during its tenure. "Development is the only goal for us and it would be our relentless efforts to relieve government undertakings and government departments of the present ills," he added.
