She wants to see Puducherry getting the national for cleanliness and greenery.
Bedi assumed charge as Lt Governor of Puducherry on May 29, and since taking over, she had been announcing various measures, including those to check crimes and corruption, for improving the functioning of the Union Territory administration.
