However, irked by ‘lack of cooperation’ to her Clean Puducherry Mission, Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi has said she would quit her post and leave the union territory if there is no improvement in the situation.
Bedi vent out her frustration at a function where she addressed participants of a marathon on ‘Road Safety’ organised by JIPMER student council.
She had earlier said that she was not there for a job but on a mission.
“It is not the job of the Lieutenant Governor alone to clean the streets as it is the job of the people, people’s representatives and officials at large,” she said.
She said this “could not go on forever” and she would wait for improvement till the end of next month.
Regretting that people were indiscriminately throwing the carcasses of dogs and pigs into drains causing choking of sewage water, she said if the garbage is not removed there will be flooding of streets during rains. She said the youth is very powerful and should engage in social activities.
Bedi, who assumed office on May 29, has been regularly visiting every Saturday and Sunday various pockets and joins hands with the municipal workers and volunteers to lift garbage as part of her mission to make Puducherry ‘prosperous and garbage free’.
