Ruling party organised bandh against Puducherry Lt governor KiranBedi on Saturday passed off peacefully.
Congress party leaders and members sat on a protest dharna outside Raj Bhavan. They were shouting slogans against the Lt Governor and how she was murdering democracy. Barring few stray incidents of stone pelting on buses the day long bandh passed off peacefully.
Chief minister V Narayansamy said that he had instructed the chief secretary and the DGP to tale stern action against miscreants and maintain law and order at all costs.
Four political parties-DMK, two communist parties and VCK had called for a shutdown protest here on Saturday against the Bedi’s style of functioning.
The protestors were also shouting slogans against the nomination of three BJP members to the legislature recently.
Some public transport buses plying to Tamil Nadu were damaged by protestors.
Meanwhile Kiran Bedi took pot shots against the CM and Congress party saying that they are protesting when people are participating in Swatch Bharat campaign.
The protests will only cause losses of crore of Rupees and achieve nothing concrete for the people.
