Puducherry [India], March 30 (ANI): Targetting the "non-performing" Congress government over the years in Puducherry, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that the "High Command" of the poll-bound Union Territory has failed on all fronts.
"In the long list of non-performing Congress governments over the years, the previous Puducherry Government has a special place. The 'High Command' Government of Puducherry failed on all fronts," Prime Minister Modi said while addressing an election rally here.
Taking a jibe at former Puducherry Chief Minister Velu Narayanasamy, he said the Puducherry election 2021 is unique as the sitting Chief Minister has not been given a ticket.
"I have had a reasonably long experience in politics. I have seen many elections. But, the Puducherry election 2021 is unique. Do you know why? Because the sitting Chief Minister has not been given a ticket, the PM said.
He further promised that if elected, the NDA will work to make Best Puducherry. "By Best, I mean Business Hub. Education Hub. Spiritual Hub. Tourism Hub," he said.
The polling for 30 assembly seats in Puducherry will be held on April 6. (ANI)
