Kiran Bedi is ‘Hitler’ in posters used in Congress protests in Puducherry

Kiran Bedi

New Delhi:  Kiran Bedi, the Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, on Friday morning tweeted a series of posters lampooning her.

She is Hitler and Goddess Kali in these posters, which have apparently been taken out by members of the Congress.

The poster was allegedly made by a Congress unit as part of its ‘Condemnation Agitation against the Central government and the Lt Governor for the process of nominating MLAs.

The posters add a bizarre twist to the turf war between the Congress and Bedi ever since she took office in May last year.

Governor Kiran Bedi had come under attack from the Congress after the swearing-in of three persons, nominated by the Centre, as the members of the Legislative Assembly on July 4.

A bandh was also observed on July 8 in Puducherry at the instance of these parties to protest against the “undemocratic style of functioning of the Lt Governor and the nomination of three BJP activists by the Centre without adhering to democratic procedures.”

The induction was met with protests by the Congress party. Several leaders including Pudducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy took part in the protests.

The parties also sought ouster of Bedi through the bandh and a fast on July 7.
