New Delhi: Former IPS officer and social activist Kiran Bedi, who has been heaping praise on Narendra Modi in the past couple of months, may be projected as Bharatiya Janata Party`s Delhi Chief Ministerial candidate, reports said on Wednesday.

The reports are doung rounds aftre Bedi yesterday hinted of joining politics.

"I no more rule out entering Indian political service on capability basis. I am moving towards some flexibility in this," Bedi tweeted.

When asked whether she was contemplating joining BJP, Bedi refused to answer.

Bedi also clarified why she was distancing herself from social worker Anna Hazare`s movement.
"I have never been electorally inclined. Each one has their inclinations. There has to be mutual respect for each other`s inclination but the fact is I was clear in my mind... about the consistency... that`s why I am in the movement... I think the thinking changed for others," she said.

Bedi, who was part of core team of Anna Hazare during his agitation for a strong Lokpal legislation, has openly been hailing Modi`s leadership saying he could lead the country effectively.

Expelled AAP MLA Vinod Kumar Binny had called upon BJP, AAP and Congress to consider Bedi for the post of Delhi chief minister, saying holding fresh Assembly elections would be a wastage of public money.
