Kiran Bedi's 'incognito' night ride in Puducherry: Twitterati asks for helmet

New Delhi :  

Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, Kiran Bedi slipped into disguise to measure the safety of women after dark. Riding pillion on a two-wheeler with her staff, Bedi had covered her face with a scarf.

Announcing her incognito ride on Twitter, she said, "Found Puducherry reasonably safe at night. But will be improved".

While many of her followers praised her for the surprise outing, but some others pointed out a violation of rules. It was noticed that neither she, nor the woman riding the two-wheeler was wearing a helmet.

In response to the brickbats, Bedi said not wearing a helmet was a deliberate choice.

“Not wearing a helmet was a careful choice,” she said, as she “wanted to appear vulnerable and wanted to see how we women driving a bike were looked at.”
