Chennai: Lt Governor Kiran Bedi on Saturday commended the efforts of Puducherry Agriculture Minister R Kamalakannan for his “relentless drive to implement Swachh Puducherry Mission,” in Karaikal.
In a tweet, the Lt Governor said, “We need more ministers like Kamalakannan, who is relentlessly driving the Swachch Puducherry crusade in Karaikal (his native region).” She further stated that Kamalakannan has been reaching out to people to explain the source segregation of garbage.
Bedi has been keen on achieving the goal of ‘Swachh Puducherry Mission’ and has been associating various sections of people with her in the drive ever since she assumed the office of Lt Governor on May 29 last, here. Kamalakannan has displayed his enthusiasm in implementing the scheme in Karaikal, an enclave of Puducherry in Nagapattinam district in neighbouring Tamil Nadu.
