The BJP, in its charge sheet against the Narayanasamy government, said that while its electoral promise was reduction in power tariffs, the rates were increased. In a similar vein, the water tariff rates were also increased instead of being reduced.

Chandrashekhar also said that the Narayanasamy government had promised 30 kg of rice and 5 kg of wheat for the people of Puduchery but failed to honour it.

The BJP leaders also alleged that the Special Component Funds meant for the SC community were not utilised properly and also accused of the government in not honouring the promise of 50 per cent government quota seats in medical and engineering and committing irregularities in admission.
