When independent member N Ramachandran from Mahe asked a question in English, Narayanasamy translated it for social welfare minister M Kandasamy.
Ramachandran, whose mother tongue is Malayalam is not fluent in Tamil and usually speaks in English.
He wanted to know about the steps taken by the government to fill vacancies in the Social Welfare Department in Mahe.
Kandasamy said the government would take steps to fill the vacancies.
Narayanasamy responded by saying he had translated the speech only at the request of the audience and not the Lt Governor's.
