PUDUCHERRY: Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit is doing in “letter and spirit” what the leadership in Delhi wanted Governors and Lieutenant Governors to do, that is to connect with people, said Puducherry  Lieutenant Governor (L-G) Kiran Bedi.

“He has not followed me, but was doing what he had been doing during his earlier tenure,” said Bedi, in response to a question on Tamil Nadu Governor holding an official review meeting in Coimbatore and his Swachh Bharat campaign.

“Whatever we are doing is what has been reiterated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ram Nath Kovind, that we have to reach out to people,” she said and added that during the last Governor’s Conference, all governors and L-Gs were advised to meet people, NGOs and inspire youth. Even the Swachhata work has been inspired by PM and President.

“All that you see now is desired (by the leadership),” she said. Bedi questioned why governors should not connect with people. “What is otherwise the governor for? To be in a large prison of a governor’s house? If you cannot connect, you are in prison,” said Bedi.

Puducherry Raj Nivas connecting with people is inspiring others. Connecting with people, understanding and serving people are the job of every public servant, she said.
