As the altercation between Puducherry's Congress party and Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi gets worse, the party is allegedly setting up derogatory banners of the governor across the Union territory.

The Lt. Governor brought the incident to light posting the pictures of these posters on her official twitter account. She started a series of tweets containing the pictures of these banners.

The first of these tweets was a screenshot of a Whatsapp conversation informing Bedi of the derogatory banner. The banner was portraying the Puducherry Governor with the signature mustache of German dictator Hitler.

The image in Kiran Bedi’ tweet claimed that the poster portraying Bedi has Hitler was printed by the local Congress unit as part of its ‘Condemnation Agitation against the Central government and the Lt Governor for the process of nominating MLAs.’

That wasn’t the only banner posted in the union territory; Kiran Bedi continued posting more pictures of such banners targeting her.

Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy accompanied by PCC chief and PWD Minister A Namassivayam, party MLAs and functionaries participated in the demonstration held at neighbouring Thavalakuppam village.

Government whip, R K R Anandaraman said that the demonstration was to urge the Centre to recall Lt. Governor Kiran Bedi for "functioning undemocratically and taking a negative stand in implementing various welfare schemes evolved by the territorial government".

Earlier, the Union Territory had also witnessed a Bandh on July 8 in a government protest against the "undemocratic functioning style of the Lt Governor and the nomination of three BJP activists by the Centre without adhering to democratic procedures."
