Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that his government will provide support for the development of Puducherry.
After laying the foundation stone for various projects at Puducherry on Thursday, Modi said, "The people of Puducherry are talented. This land is beautiful. I am here to personally assure all possible support from my government for the development of Puducherry."
Puducherry recently saw political turmoil after the Congress government fell early this week. Earlier, Tamilsai Soundararajan replaced Kiran Bedi as lieutenant governor (LG) of Puducherry. Soundararajan was shifted to the Union Territory from Telangana, where she was the governor.
