The JD(U) on Sunday opposed the appointment of Kiran Bedi as Puducherry Lt Governor, alleging such ‘political’ appointments are made to serve interests of the ruling party.

They are first appointed and then misused. Even during Congress time in past political appointments were made.”

    Emerald secularism of liberalized and tolerant parties with a mixture of medieval mind set or saffronised right with modern progressive ideas ? is the choice to be excersised by the voters . If one has to go by NITISH'S wish list RABRI would be the best choice so that LALU JI is packed off to relax in Puducherry . Nitish should embark upon his next mission of BJP/RSS and Saffron mukt GREEN INDIA .

          Thyagaraja and Nitish cheated Bihar voters after winning elections on BJP alliance. Such tyagis have no right to comment. I wish Nitish and Tyagi need governors like Taslimuddin.

            JD(U) has expressed their views correctly. Only in order to rehabilitate Mrs.Bedi this appointment was given to her, by the saffronised party at the centre headed by NAMO. Let us hope that she shall not create any unnecessary trouble to the newly elected cong(I) government there.
