Notwithstanding the constant friction between her and the ruling Congress over a host of issues, Puducherry Lt Governor Kiran Bedi today said she loved the Union Territory as it was a "fantastic place" and "easy to serve and achieve."
On the occasion of her 69th birthday, she told reporters here that she was grateful to the Almighty for all the energy given to her.
"I also thank the people of Puducherry for the love they have given me and trust they have reposed in me," she said.
Bedi, who assumed office in 2016 said, "from day one I have committed myself to serving Puducherry along with officials to make it prosperous in agriculture, health and in law and order."
Several top officials including the Director General of Police S K Gautam, and staff of Raj Nivas greeted her.
Later she left for Karaikal where she offered prayers at Dharbaraneswarar temple in Tirunallar.
Ever since Bedi assumed office, the Congress government in Puducherry and she have been at loggerheads over several issues including medical admissions, civic problems and induction of three nominated MLAs belonging to the BJP.
