Kiran Bedi removed as Puducherry LG
New Delhi : Dr Kiran Bedi has been removed as the Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry. Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan has been given an additional charge till the time new person is appointed to replace her.
It must be noted that Kiran Bedi and Congress was at par from past few weeks and CM V Narayanaswamy had urged President Ram Nath Kovid to call her back.
The Chief Minister had alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bedi "hatched a conspiracy to dismantle the separate status of Puducherry by merging it with Tamil Nadu." He had also accused the PM and Bedi of being keen on depriving the people of Puducherry of their rights.
The SDA, barring the DMK, had gone on a day long fast here on February 5, demanding recall of Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi.
