Accusing her former ally and Puducherry chief minister N Rangasamy of indulging in family politics by fielding a relative for the Indra Nagar assembly by-poll, AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa on Tuesday said the incumbent government was "anti-people."

"Four months after assuming office, Puducherry government has not implemented any welfare measures. Law and order is in disarray. No action has been taken on Education Minister PM Kalyanasundaram, charged with using a proxy to write SSLC Examination. Overall the Ranagsamy government is functioning in support of anti-people activities," she charged.

In a statement here, she said while Rangasamy, chief of the All India NR Congress, had resigned from the Indra Nagar seat, necessitating the October 13 by-poll, he had fielded his brother's son as the candidate, "betraying" his partymen.

Canvassing votes for her party's Puducherry unit Treasurer A Venkateswaran who is in the fray, she assured he would strive for addressing all the needs of the local voters.

Though the NR Congress had aligned with AIADMK for the April assembly elections, it had formed the government on its own with the support of an independent, which the AIADMK supremo described as breach of "coalition dharma."
