(Puducherry)BJP Carry Bedi ‘s Line & Opposed Casinos in Puducherry
The Puducherry unit of the Bharathiya Janata party (BJP) presented a memorandum to the territorial Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi on Tuesday in protest against the ruling Congress government to introduce casinos here.
A delegation of the party unit led by V Saminathan, an MLA, submitted the memorandum to Bedi at Raj Niwas, her official residence.
Later, a statement from her office said the memorandum referred to the possibility of the cultural base of Puducherry getting affected if casinos were permitted and hence approval for them must not be given.
In the statement, Bedi assured the BJP delegation that she would go through the petition and initiate appropriate action.
On Saturday, Bedi had rejected the government’s proposal to open casinos, lotteries and breweries to earn more revenue, saying they are considered against the spiritual ethos and social fabric of Puducherry.
