Are elected Netas meant to serve us or reign over us? Have they become first amongst equals? And are you, the common man, being held hostage by VVIP ‘dadagiri’?
Well, here’s a Neta who’s done what no one has ever done before. Put a brake on the Lal Batti culture.
Kiran Bedi, newly sworn-in as the LG of Puducherry, has put a blanket ban on VIPs using red beacons.
However, united by their greed for power, netas across the political spectrum have criticized the novel move. Some call Kiran Bedi ‘over-zealous’, while others say it’s beyond her jurisdiction.
