New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kiran Bedi on Tuesday congratulated Arvind Kejriwal for Aam Aadmi Party's emphatic performance in Delhi Assembly Elections.
While congratulating Kejriwal, BJP's chief ministerial candidate Bedi appealed the AAP chief to make Delhi a world class city.
Bedi wrote on social networking website Twitter: “Full marks to Arvind. Congratulations. Now take Delhi to the heights it belongs to. Make it a world class city..”

Bedi's message came as AAP appeared racing towards a massive victory in Delhi.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also called up and congratulated the AAP leader and assured him support from the central government.
The AAP today raced towards a landslide win in the Delhi assembly election, with the BJP congratulating AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal.
Election officials counting the millions of votes polled Saturday said the Aam Aadmi Party was set to win more than 50 of the 70 seats in the Delhi Assembly, with a staggering vote share of at least 52 percent.
The worst news for the BJP came from Krishna Nagar constituency where its chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi, personally picked by PM Modi, trailed to the AAP.
The BJP was forging ahead in just a dozen seats, far less than the 31 it won in December 2013.
The Congress, which was reduced to eight seats last time, was headed for a rout.
