Puducherry CM V Narayanasamy sparked controversy asking the Central government to declare the Union Territory as "transgender" as the Centre treats it sometimes as a state and sometimes as a Union Territory. He said this while participating in the "Challenges to India's fiscal federalism" workshop. The CM said Puducherry gets only 30 per cent of the share while the remaining is taken away by the Centre.
