Escalating the ongoing power struggle between the Puducherry government and Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi, the state assembly on Friday adopted a resolution to amend the law to curtail the powers of the Lieutenant Governor for good. The resolution isn't binding on the central government, certainly not parliament. But it is a clear indication about the breakdown of relations between the V Narayanasamy government and Kiran Bedi. At the heart of the power tussle that started after Ms Bedi's appointment as the Union Territory's Lt Governor last year is a dispute over who gets the first and last word in running the affairs of the union territory: Chief Minister or the Lt Governor.
