Narayanasamy was addressing party workers at the celebration of the founding day of the Congress at the PCC office here.
Referring to the implementation of various welfare schemes in Puducherry by present government headed by him, the Chief Minister said, "the negative stand of Lt Governor Kiran Bediimpeded implementation of decisions of the cabinet."

"We decided to distribute Pongal gift hampers for all ration card holders.
But Kiran Bedi returned the file and insisted that only families coming under 'below poverty line' should be covered and this was one such example where the government was put to embarrassing predicament," he alleged.
The Congress government has been at loggerheads with Bedi over various administrative matters.
