Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday accused the BJP of luring Congress MLAs and destabilising party-led governments as Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayansamy resigned after failing to muster up numbers in the Assembly.

“What has happened in Puducherry is most unfortunate and yet another case of how the BJP is destabilising Congress governments to grab power through unethical means,” Gehlot said.

His remarks came as Narayanasamy quit as Puducherry chief minister after his government was reduced to a minority as six MLAs supporting him quit over the past one month, two months ahead of the assembly elections.

“First, they created problems in running the administration through the Lieutenant Governor and now this has happened,” Gehlot said, targeting the BJP for the loss of the Congress government.

“Luring Congress MLAs has been their modus operandi in all Congress-ruled states. We saw this in Karnataka, MP and now in Puducherry. They tried it in Rajasthan but people of Rajasthan taught them a lesson,” he said.

“The people are watching what tactics BJP is adopting and the party will be taught a lesson by electorates in the next elections in Puducherry,” he added.
