Kiran Bedi, the Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, this morning tweeted a series of posters lampooning her. The former police officer is Hitler and Goddess Kali in these posters, which have apparently been taken out by members of the ruling Congress.
The posters were reportedly printed for a Congress protest to demand Bedi's exit; the party has described her as dictatorial after several clashes in recent weeks.
The posters, which Bedi describes as "one of a series", were put up across the city and shared on social media. The image in the poster showed Hitler's trademark toothbrush moustache superimposed on Bedi's face.
Yet another poster was tweeted by Bedi, in which she was portrayed as the Hindu Goddess Kali holding the decapitated head of some politicians, including that of Chief Minister V Narayanasamy.
She also shared in a series of tweets, one of which is a cartoon showing her being chased away.
The posters were allegedly made by Congress party cadres to protest against the appointment of three MLAs by the LG without consulting the territorial government.
On Thursday, Congress workers protested against the induction of three nominated members of the BJP to the Puducherry Assembly by the Centre without consulting the territorial government.
Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy accompanied by PCC chief and PWD Minister A Namassivayam, party MLAs and functionaries participated in the demonstration held at Thavalakuppam village.
Defending nomination of three legislators, which intensified the spat between her and Narayanasamy, Bedi had said she did not receive any names for nominating them as MLAs from the chief minister.
She had said the "central government exercised its power to nominate upto three MLAs".
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 parties also sought ouster of Bedi through the bandh and also through a fast on July 7.
