CM challenges L-G Kiran Bedi

While addressing the media on Wednesday regarding the complaint given by congress rebel MLA Dhanavelu on Monday,
Puducherry CM said that he is willing to resign if found guilty, questions if Kiran Bedi will quit if proved wrong. Rebel MLA Dhanavelu met Bedi on Monday and submitted a memorandum, which had a list of alleged corruptions of the Puducherry government and he also sought a probe in the matter. He then said that Bedi asked him to send a complaint to the CBI as well.

CM V Narayanasamy said "The matter doesn't hold any weight, it didn't have any proof. It was just an oral mention and she has taken the matter to the press. This shows how incompetent she is. I challenge Kiran Bedi. If I or any of my family members are proved guilty in any land grabbing case, I'll resign. But will Kiran Bedi quit if it's not proved? She is wrongly trying to malign me. She no longer deserves to remain Lieutenant Governor", with an annoyed tone.
