Puducherry's Congress-Led Govt Falls In Minority; Fourth MLA Resigns
Puducherry’s Congress-led government has fallen in the minority after MLA John Kumar resigned without any explanation. Resultantly, Congress' membership fell from 15 to 10 in the 30 member assembly. While John became the fourth member to resign, two of the earlier three defected to the BJP. Resigning a day ahead of Rahul Gandhi's visit to the poll-bound UT, John recently met President to seek the removal of Puducherry L-G Kiran Bedi.
