Challenge for Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi joins BJP ahead of Delhi Polls

New Delhi, Jan 15: Shunning all the rumours into rest, social activist and former IPS officer Kiran Bedi finally joined the BJP today ahead of the Delhi assembly polls. This could be seen as a challenge for AAP, which has been asking the media and voters about the CM face from the saffron party for the polls.

BJP president Amit Shah formally announced his joining in the party in a press conference held in the national capital today. Union finance minister Arun Jaitely also welcomed her to the party.

Talking to reporters, Kiran Bedi said that the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inspired her to join the political party and she is now on a mission to serve the Delhi people and make the state as the heart of the nation in true nation.

"I want Delhi to have a strong, stable and corruption free government after the polls", she said.

She will dedicate all her 40 years of experience to the state and nation by serving people. She vowed to eliminate the corruption in every field.

When asked to Amit Shah about her contesting Delhi polls, the party chief said that the decision is yet to be taken from which constituency she will fight the elections. He indirectly indicated that she will be the top face in the CM race.

The Delhi assembly polls would be tough for AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal with her joining in BJP today.
