Puducherry LG Kiran Bedi upheld by apex court

New Delhi, Dec 6: The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the decision of Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi to nominate three MLAs to the state Assembly.

A bench, headed by Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri, noted that the LG has the power to nominate persons to the state assembly.

Indian National Congress had challenged the decision of the LG to nominate MLAs, contending that the ruling party should have been consulted. (UNI)
