Puducherry: Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy on Wednesday sought the intervention of President Ram Nath Kovind to immediately recall Lt Governor Kiran Bedi, saying she has been “impeding” implementation of various welfare measures and decisions of his cabinet.

Talking to reporters here, the Chief Minister said he had presented a detailed memorandum to the President during the latter’s visit to the Union Territory on December 23 to participate in convocation.

“I have requested the President to intervene and recall Kiran Bedi as Lt Governor,” he said.

He said he had pointed out in the memorandum that Bedi had not contributed anything to the development of Puducherry ever since she became the Lt Governor.

Narayanasamy had also stated that the Lt Governor was functioning “arbitrarily” and was seeking to run a parallel government and the schemes that would see the light of the day were facing hiccups because of hurdles she was placing.

He said he had therefore urged the President to intervene and recall Kiran Bedi as Lt Governor of Puducherry immediately.

The Congress government had earlier also demanded that the Centre recall Bedi.

The Chief Minister said he had also highlighted in the memorandum, various administrative and fiscal issues the government headed by him has been facing for last three years.

He pleaded for grant of Statehood to Puducherry and apprised the President of number of resolutions adopted on the floor of the Assembly since 1987 pushing for it.

The President assured to go into the demands, he added.
