Kiran Bedi tweets posters portraying her as Hitler, puts Congress on mat

Kiran Bedi tweets posters portraying her as Hitler, puts Congress on mat”

The tussle between Puducherry Lt. Governor Kiran Bedi and the ruling-Congress took an ugly turn on Thursday as posters portraying the former IPS officer as Adolf Hitler and "Maa Kali" surfaced in the city. While the first one portrayed her as Hitler, the other one shows how the Lt Gov is being chased away. There is also one where she has been portrayed as Goddess Kali.

Defending nomination of three legislators, which intensified the spat between her and Narayanasamy, Bedi had said she did not receive any names for nominating them as MLAs from the chief minister.

Narayanasamy, who shares bitter relations with LG Bedi, appealed people not to repeat the mistake of showing the LG in the bad light.

The posters were reportedly printed for a Congress protest to demand Ms Bedi's exit; the party has described her as dictatorial after several clashes in recent weeks. "They are really an attempt at lowering the status of the office of lieutenant governor", she added in her tweets.

However, Chief Minister V Narayanasamy denied any link with the posters.

Such criticisms or depicting images of the lieutenant governor would not also be in line with public opinion and people too will not accept this type of protest, he said. "A midterm measurable performance appraisal of the institution shall also be carried out engaging professionals in the field after six months", a notification issued by the Lt Governor during the time of appointment said.

On July 8, a bandh was observed in Puducherry over the induction of the three MLAs. "All I see is the angst coming to posters", Bedi told India Today.

The altercation between the Congress-led Puducherry government and the office of the Lieutenant Governor triggered after the Centre nominated three persons as the members of the Legislative Assembly on July 4. The parties also sought ouster of Bedi. The Ministry of Home Affairs at the center, had appointed S Selvaganapathy, party treasurer KG Shankar, and Puducherry BJP chief V Saminathan as nominated legislators of the state assembly.
