New Delhi: Hours after being removed as the Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, Kiran Bedi took to Twitter to thank the people of union territory and all the public officials for being a part of her journey.

“I thank the Government of India for a lifetime experience in serving Puducherry, as its Lt Governor,” Bedi said in a statement.

Stating that Puducherry has a very bright future, Bedi added that its future is now in the hands of the people.

Bedi also tweeted a message she found on the cover of her diary that told her to have a “kind heart, fierce mind and brave spirit”.

On Tuesday, Kiran Bedi was removed as Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry with President Ram Nath Kovind giving additional charge of the Union Territory to Telangana Governor Tamilisai Sundari Soundarajan.

A Rashtrapati Bhavan communique said that the President has directed that Bedi “shall cease to hold the office of the Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry”. It also said that the President has asked Soundarajan to discharge the functions of LG of Puducherry in addition to her own duties until regular arrangements are made.

Bedi, country’s first woman IPS officer and BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate in Delhi in 2015, was appointed LG on May 28, 2016.
