"I performed a sacred duty", says Kiran Bedi

Hours after she was removed as Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, Kiran Bedi said whatever she did was a sacred duty, fulfilling her constitutional and moral responsibilities. She thanked the Centre for a 'lifetime experience' in serving Puducherry.

 Kiran Bedi was on Tuesday removed as the Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry. Tamilisai Soundararajan, the Governor of Telangana, has been given additional charge as the Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry till a permanent replacement will be announced.

 

The development comes in the backdrop of a major shake-up in the Puducherry Assembly after several Congress legislators resigned ahead of the Assembly elections due this year.

Puducherry Social Welfare Minister Kandasamy on Tuesday also said that the Cabinet headed by Chief Minister V. Narayanasamy will resign following the resignations.

 

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Puducherry L-G Kiran Bedi have been harassing the Congress government for four and a half years. They are trying to dissolve the regime. We are working to dissolve the cabinet headed by CM Narayanasamy and win the assembly elections again,” Kandaswamy said in a video.

 

After the resignation of four legislators during last one month, the Congress government has left with 14 legislators in 30-member Assembly. As the strength of the Assembly has dropped to 28, the majority mark is now 15.

Narayanasamy, however, has denied that his government has been reduced to a minority. He alleged that BJP is carrying out operational 'lotus' to lure legislators from other parties. Assembly elections in Puducherry are due in May this year along with the polls in neighboring Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
