Bedi’s removal as the Lieutenant-Governor of Puducherry comes at a time when the ruling Congress government has lost its majority after four of its MLAs resigned from the Assembly

PUDUCHERRY

Kiran Bedi thanked the government for a “life time experience” as the Lieutenant-Governor of Puducherry, after she was removed from the top post last night amid a crisis in the ruling Congress government in the union territory. The Congress government has slipped into a minority after four Congress leaders resigned from the Assembly since last month.
“Thank all those who were a part my journey as Lt Governor of Puducherry-The People of Puducherry and all the Public officials,” Ms Bedi, 71, tweeted this morning, along with a statement.
“I thank the Government of India for a life time experience in serving Puducherry, as its Lt Governor,” she said. “TeamRajNivas” worked diligently to serve larger public interest, Ms Bedi said.

The notice for Ms Bedi’s withdrawal, which came from the Rashtrapati Bhavan, is seen as a political move by the BJP to negate their rivals’ primary campaign platform and further weaken them ahead of assembly election in May.
The former IPS officer also tweeted a clip of a motivational quote from a cover of a dairy on her table. “Kind heart, fierce mind, brave spirit,” it said.

Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan has been asked to discharge functions of the Lieutenant-Governor of Puducherry, in addition to her own duties, until a new appointment is made.
