“He is not letting people wear helmets,” Puducherry Lt Governor’s exasperation at CM protesting against road safety rules

CM Narayansami had earlier stated that Lt Governor Bedi should function as only a 'post office' and sign papers. He had accused her of interfering with his government's activities on PM Modi's behest.

After the Puducherry CM  V Narayanswamy started his absurd dharna protesting against the implementation of Helmet-rule by Governor Kiran Bedi calling it ‘abuse of power’ and ‘interference’ in day-to-day practices of the government, Bedi has said that the CM did not mention anything about the dharna in his letter addressed to her.

Lt Governor Kiran Bedi said that she received the letter of the CM dated February 7 on 8th of February and on 13th he sat on dharna while nowhere in the letter was it mentioned that if the letter was not replied by 13th he would sit on a dharna.

The Governor even wrote back to the CM inviting him to meet her on 21st of Feb as she is on a tour which ends on 20th February.

Bedi expressed her displeasure over CM Narayansamy continuing his Dharna even after being granted a formal appointment.

CM Narayanswamy has been sitting outside Raj Bhawan, along with his ministers, since yesterday wearing black clothes as a sign of protest alleging that the Governor was enforcing rules on the law-abiding citizens of Puducherry by mandating them to wear helmets.

This is interesting to see how the Congress CM is protesting against something as basic and important for road safety as wearing helmets to settle political scores. Unfortunately, he is not the only one who appears to have lost all sanity. He is joined by All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) MLAs who broke helmets in the assembly premises to protest against the road safety rule.

The MLAs condemned the helmet rule calling it arbitrary. The CM who is apparently highly upset with the road safety rule has alleged that the Governor was acting on the instructions of PM Modi to create troubles for the State government. He has urged the Central government to recall her.
