Chandigarh: Till a day before joining BJP, Kiran Bedi had no intention to "join politics" but things changed after she met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, her husband said on Thursday.
"Before her joining BJP we were not at all interested in politics. A day before joining BJP, she said there is no chance of joining politics," said Brij Bedi.
"Then she met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and she was convinced by the party...She rang me up and said destiny is taking somewhere else then I said ok," he told PTI.
He said she joined politics, taking it as a challenge and he supported Bedi when she decided to foray into politics.
"Why will not I support her decision of joining politics? She is an intelligent woman and I had always supported her, though we do not stay together but it is not that support is not there," he said.
When asked whether he is hopeful of BJP's victory, he said, "I think so...If BJP comes to power in Delhi then Delhi will gain, if they do not win, then Delhi will lose,"
Brij runs a school in Amritsar for providing free education to poor children.
