Although they have been virtually pulling in different directions on various administrative issues, Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi and Chief Minister V Narayanasamy joined hands on Friday to pull a temple chariot near here. The Sengazhuneer Amman temple celebrated the annual car festival on the fifth Friday of the Tamil month of Aadi.
PWD Minister A Namassivayam, Congress legislator T Jayamoorthy and a large number of people from different parts of the union territory and neighbouring Tamil Nadu districts participated in the festival. It has been a unique tradition followed since the French regime here that the head of the state (Governor or Lt Governor) should join hands with the common people to drag the chariot of temples at the annual festival.
