“But unfortunately from day one Kiran Bedi had been rigidly strict and formidable in her opinion towards
inaugurated government’s supervision of a administration giving arise to controversies and drawing criticisms from several sections including political parties,” it said.

The chit pronounced her control was not gainful for well-spoken administration of Puducherry and on a discordant “it is uncivilised of a Constitutional management allocated by a Centre to be a Administrator here”.

It sought directions from Union Home Minister to a Lt Governor “to act in consent with inaugurated government’s
decisions before a benefaction conditions snowballed into a inherent crisis”.

Besides Lakshminarayanan, a other MLAs who are signatories to a chit are Deputy Speaker VP Sivakolundhu, supervision whip R K R Anandaraman, V Vijayaveny, E Theeppainthan, T Jayamoorthy, N Dhanavelu, and M NR Balan.

foster WhatsApp communication by officials.
