The clash between Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry Kiran Bedi and Chief Minister Narayanasamy took a turn for the worse with the latter tweeting that he has brought to the notice of the PM that she is ‘not fit to be a governor’.

On Sunday, the CM, while addressing the media, had said that Kiran Bedi should not interfere in the functions of the government.

In response, Bedi said that the chief minister wants an ‘endorser’ for all his actions and not someone who would speak up about the wrong things.

Narayanasamy alleged that Kiran has been using social media to reveal confidential information, which is against the oath of office and secrecy that she undertook while assuming office.

“Now I’m going to the Public to expose the governor's illegal & Unconstitutional activities. She has become a burden for the state government. She is behaving in an autocratic manner, violating the norms. HLG is abusing the Officers, Ministers, MLAs. Therefore, her act is unbecoming of a lieutenant governor,” he said in a series of tweets.

 

 

 

 

 

This comes after Kiran Bedi conducted a surprise inspection on May 31 and found that the self-financing colleges in Puducherry were failing to fill seats under the government quota and charging way over the fees set by the committee appointed by the Supreme Court, from the students who got admission through Centralised Admission Committee (CENTAC).

“Students and parents are crying for admissions as per the orders of the Union government and higher judiciary. Who will hear them? Raj Nivas is becoming their last hope. Puducherry needs justice, integrity and good governance. How will they get it? Who will give them? Who will speak up for them? I am not an onlooker but someone whose heart beats for them, someone who serves with sense of selflessness and someone who places people before position,“ she said, reported The Times of India.

She added that the chief minister should feel empowered by her presence, as someone is there to clean up the mess.
