Puducherry:  Puducherry unit of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) today condemned the BJP government at the Centre for allegedly using Lt.Governor Kiran Bedi for party works. In a statement here, CPI (M) Secretary Rajangam pointed out that Dr Bedi who is getting several lakh of rupees as salary and other allowances in the capacity as the Lt.Governor is allegedly misusing her powers for BJP works which need to be condemned strongly. If she wanted to work for the BJP, she should resign her post as the LG and should work from the BJP office which will shows political civilization, he said. Mr Rajangam said ever since Dr Bedi assumed office as the LG she started indulging in “anti-democratic” activities and was keen in implementing the Union government’s “anti-people” schemes in Puducherry. Presently, reports are there that she on her own had recommended the names of three BJP activists to be appointed as the nominated members to the Assembly which is against the rules and amounts to “murder of democracy”, Mr Rajangam said. Hitherto, the ruling party used to select the nominated members to the territorial Assembly and the action of the Lt.Governor to deprive the state of its rights is a ‘murder of democracy’,he charged. He called upon the centre to recall the Lt.Governor forthwith and also exhorted all political parties and democratic forces to come forward to join together to fight for the protection of democratic principles.
