 Union Minister V Narayanasamy said on Saturday night that the All India NR Congress government would fall on its own soon as majority of its workers and leaders were disillusioned with Chief Minister N Rangasamy and the way his government funtioned.

Narayanasamy said NR Congress was trying to approach the Congress party by sending feelers, but “Congress has not opened its doors for them”.

He made these comments at a function at Thirukkannur near here. Opposition leader V Vaithilingam and PCC chief A V Subramanian were also present. The government would not survive long as there was disillusionment among the ranks of the NR Congress, he said.

Reiterating his criticism of Rangasamy’s autocratic rule, he said that the ministers have been reduced to “dummies”. He also reiterated that the state government had failed on various fronts — implementing new schemes, ensuring distribution of single boiled rice and enhancing amount for old age pension.

When asked for his reaction to the Union Minister’s comments, NR Congress Minister T Thiagarajan said that these comments were made to boost the sagging morale of the Congress party, which was facing flak from the Centre.

Few days ago Narayansamy had said that his party would hold agitations at each Constituency if the promises made in NR Congress’ manifesto were not fulfilled within three months.
