New Delhi, Feb 16: President Ram Nath Kovind today removed  Dr. Kiran Bedi from the office of the Lieutenant-Governor of Puducherry and has appointed Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan, Governor of Telangana, to discharge the functions.

A  statement from the President’s office has said: “The President has directed that Dr. Kiran Bedi shall cease to hold the office of the Lieutenant-Governor of Puducherry and has appointed Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan, Governor of Telangana, to discharge the functions of the Lieutenant-Governor of Puducherry, in addition to her own duties, with effect from the date she assumes charge of her office until regular arrangements for the office of Lieutenant-Governor of Puducherry are made.”

The development amid a political crisis in the Congress-ruled UT.

NDTV  has reported: “The Congress government in Puducherry has slipped into a minority with two resignations in two days but Chief Minister V Narayanasamy said today he was confident of persuading the two leaders to stay. “Our government is not in a minority,” he asserted in an interview with NDTV.

The resignations of Malladi Krishna Rao and John Kumar, who quit back-to-back, have not been accepted and were still being considered by the Speaker, Mr. Narayanasamy said. He also hit out at the BJP, accusing them of planning another “operation Kamal (lotus)” – the opposition’s name for what they call the BJP’s strategy of engineering defections and toppling governments – in Puducherry.”
