Charging the previous government (headed by Congress) in Puducherry with having caused "several hiccups in administration and development  of Puducherry", the Chief Minister said, "It is not an easy task for the administration to wriggle out of the hiccups." 

He said that steps were taken to rid the administration of various difficulties it had suffered because of the previous administration. Claiming that the government was keen to revive various industrial undertakings including Anglo-French Textiles (AFT), Bharathi Mills and Swadeshi Cotton Mills, the cooperative spinning and sugar mills which were defunct now, the Chief Minister said that these industries had "rich potential to provide jobs and also to improve the economy of Puducherry."
