Puducherry: Lieutant Governor of Puducherry Kiran Bedi today took a bicycle tour in some areas in the Union Territory to assess the impact of her “Clean Puducherry Mission”. She was accompanied on bicycles by Director General of Police S K Gautam, Commissioner of Puducherry Municipality R Chandrasekar and staff of the Swachh Bharat programme.

Ms Bedi stopped at some points, interacted with people to get feedback on the programme, and also asked them to ensure that there was no let up in the implementation of the programme.

The former IPS officer had been making week-end-visits to suburban and rural areas ever since she assumed charge on May 29 as part of her intention to ensure that Puducherry emerged as the cleanest Union Territory.

She was also urging residents and other sections of people to ensure there was no open defecation in the entire Union Territory.

She had also launched ‘shramdhan movement‘ in some villages.

Dispensing with all formalities, she had also joined hands at times with the conservancy staff of local bodies to remove garbages.


  1. Srithish Prabhu

    The governor’s initiative is apprecaible ; however, the citizens of Puducherry need to take it upon themselves to make Puducherry clean. This still seems to be lacking. I visit Pondicherry every month and the citizen participation seems to be insufficient. It’s the same story across India. Citizen participation alone can ensure success of such initiatives. Another issue that requires to be addressed on war footing is road manners….driving in Puducherry is a risky affair…with rash driving and driving on wrong side being very common. Puducherry citizens could take some ideas from their white town to learn the importance of planned development.

  2. great madam

    we wish our krnataka D.G.Mr.Om Prakash who is not for the police post also pedals and get thinner.

  3. This is the right approach. She is dedicated and committed and knowledgeable and has urge to achieve for the country. Let us forget 60 years of misrule of lootmar party and join hands with respected L G to improve whole India. Time has changed NDTV. NDTV has also to change track to gain the respect of Indians.

  4. Anything for free or cheap publicity. Thy name is Kiran Bedi
