The L-G said she was according approval to all decisions taken by the government to provide flood relief, monthly assistance to the elderly beneficiaries and several other welfare measures.

Puducherry is poised to emerge as the "best Union Territory" as has been stated by the Prime Minister in all sectors", she pointed out. The Puducherry Assembly, which began its budget session on Wednesday, had adjourned sine die for the first time ever following the address by the L-G.
