Puducherry, Aug 24 : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP ) on Saturday extended its support to the no- confidence motion moved by the N R Congress against Puducherry Assembly Speaker Sivakozhunthu, earlier this week.

BJP state president V Saminathan, MLA (nominated), handed over a letter in this regard to Legislative Assembly Speaker Vincent Rayar in his office today.

BJP legislator Selvaganapathy and NR Congress member Jayabal were present on the occasion.

It may be noted that NR Congress president and Leader of the Opposition N Rangaswamy on August 20 moved the no-confidence motion against the Speaker stating that he was taking part in all Congress party functions and could not act impartially in the house.

The BJP has three members (all nominated) in the House and have voting rights, following a Supreme Court verdict.
