Dharna against helmets: Puducherry CM sleeps outside Raj Nivas, says Kiran Bedi should only be the ‘post office’

Kiran Bedi has stated that the CM and his MLAs protesting against the rules of Motor Vehicle act is condemnable. She has termed the CM's dharna as 'unlawful' and told that he should have waited for her response over the February 7 letter.

Puducherry CM Narayansamy has started protests against the Lt Governor of the Union Territory, Kiran Bedi. As per reports, instead of following Kejriwal’s footsteps where the Delhi CM had enforced his unwelcome presence inside the Raj Bhawan and had made himself comfortable on a sofa for days on end, the Puducherry CM spent the night outside the Raj Niwas, sleeping on the floor.

Narayansamy has alleged that Lt Governor Bedi has been abusing her power and interfering in the day to day activities of the government. The CM, along with his ministers, has taken to protesting outside the Raj Bhavan, wearing black clothes. He alleged that the Lt Governor is ‘forcing’ rules on the ‘law-abiding citizens’ of Puducherry by enforcing the use of helmets.

The CM demanded that the rule of compulsory use of helmets issued by the DGP S Sundari Nanda should be implemented in a phased manner and not on one go.

Narayansamy has alleged that the Lt Governor is yet to act on 39 pending issues which have been sent to her, including the release of funds, salary payments and approval of different projects.

Taking inspiration from Kejriwal, Narayansamy also alleged the Bedi is acting on behalf of the Prime Minister who has told her to create troubles for the state government.

He stated that Kiran Bedi’s only job is to be a ‘post office’ and sign papers.

Earlier, Lt Governor Bedi has stated that the CM has been delaying the enforcement of helmet rule in the Union Territory and due to that, the region has become very prone to fatal road accidents. She has also called for awareness campaigns and has interacted with people on the streets encouraging them to wear helmets.

Kiran Bedi has called Narayansamy’s dharna ‘unlawful’. She has stated that instead of waiting for a reply to his official letter sent on February 7, the CM has blocked the path to Raj Bhavan and has even prevented the staff from coming to office. She stated that a CM protesting against the implementation of the Motor Vehicle Act and lawmakers turning into lawbreakers is condemnable.

Bedi has stated that the implementation of helmet rules is as per orders by the orders of the Supreme Court and Madras High Court and the CM and his lawmakers protesting against it is a contempt of the court orders.

Earlier last month, several politicians, including BJP MP Anil Shirole had protested against the strict imposition of helmet rule in Pune. They had demanded that helmets should not be made compulsory but should be a personal choice.
