Puducherry Health and Tourism Minister Malladi Krishna Rao on Saturday hit out at Lt Governor Kiran Bedi for allegedly impeding the implementation of developmental schemes evolved for Yanam region from where Rao was elected to the Assembly.
Several posts in various departments in the region have been lying vacant, although the Cabinet had taken decisions to fill the vacancies, he said. He said Bedi should give her approval for the various welfare and developmental schemes for Yanam placed before her before she visits the region next week. He said if Bedi visited Yanam without approving the schemes, “we will teach her a fitting lesson”.
Official sources said the Lt Governor had planned to visit Yanam for a meeting with officials there to review the various schemes implemented in the region on October 14 and 15.
