No Regrets For Not Wearing Helmet During Night Ride: Kiran Bedi
Pondechery Governor Kiran Bedi, who hit the headlines with a sudden, clandestine scooty ride ‘to test the safety for women during night time’ decided not to express regrets for not following the rule of wearing a helmet. She explained it on her official twitter: “Not wearing helmet was a careful choice. Both wanted to appear vulnerable & wanted to see how we women driving a scooty at nite r looked at”
But the tweeple do not take it in right spirit.. “When you do it, follow like a common man, wear a helmet and if not , pay the fine..” they advised her while appreciating her move.
Kiran Bedi found Puducherry reasonably safe but suggested a few steps to improve the surveillance. She asked the police to look into it.
Ms Bedi, a former top cop, went incognito on a scooty on Friday night to have a first hand information on the situation in the city.
