On Saturday, Bedi told reporters at the airport here that she was looking at a prosperous Puducherry, achieving growth in all aspects.

"I am looking at a Puducherry which grows in all aspects, whether it is agriculture, education, tourism, health care, industry, women welfare, all..," Bedi said.

 

"I am just looking at a prosperous Puducherry growing in every respect," she said.

The former Indian Police Service officer, meanwhile, told news agency ANI that her focus at the moment is to put the Union Territory on the tourist map of India, as it is a great destination and deserves no less attention than Goa, or any other popular tourist spot in the country.
