Kiran Bedi leaves for Coimbatore en route to Delhi, days after she got removed from the position of Lt Governor of Puducherry. 

Wishing for a prosperous Puducherry, said Bedi as she was seen off by staff and workers at Raj Niwas. 

The former IPS officer was keen that there should be 'perfect and corruption-free administration and financial prudence.'

She was replaced by Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan, who is holding the post of Lt Governor under additional charge.

Tamilisai assumed office on February 18.

But, Bedi continued to stay on in Raj Nivas till Sunday.

In a WhatsApp message, she said she was thankful to her successor for having allowed her a few days(to stay at Raj Nivas) to help pack up to travel back to Delhi. She said she would visit Isha Foundation in Coimbatore before flying to Delhi.

Bedi also said that she would visit Puducherry as a tourist to meet her friends and take a stroll on the beach here.

Bedi was the fourth woman incumbent of the post of Lt Governor.

She assumed the office of Lt governor on May 29, 2016, and had been at loggerheads with Chief Minister V Narayanasamy on various issues.
