Will deliver effective, clean governance in Delhi: Kiran Bedi

New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi on Friday reiterated that strong governance is the need of the hour in Delhi and she is committed to dedicate her 40 years of experience in serving the people.

Bedi, country's first woman IPS officer took to Twitter to connect to Delhiites.

She tweeted: “I look forward to dedicating my 40 years of deep administrative and social work experience in the service of Delhi as your CM.”

Recently, AAP founding member Shanti Bhushan said that declaring Kiran Bedi as the BJP's chief ministerial candidate was a "master stroke" and she will make a better chief minister than AAP's Arvind Kejriwal.

While Kejriwal will contest polls from the New Delhi constituency, where he defeated three-time Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit in the 2013 assembly polls, Bedi is being fielded from the Krishna Nagar constituency, which is a BJP stronghold.

Both Kejriwal and Bedi, who were part of the anti-corruption movement led by activist Anna Hazare before the AAP chief decided to form his own political party, led road shows across the city before filing nominations.

Kejriwal has requested for a debate a day after Bedi was named the Bharatiya Janata Party's chief ministerial candidate. However, the BJP's CM candidate sidestepped AAP chief's challenge for a debate on issues facing Delhi.

Bedi, 65, joined the BJP Jan 15 and was named its chief ministerial nominee Monday night.

In the 2013 elections, the AAP won 28 seats and finished a close second to the BJP which bagged 31 seats. The Congress could win only eight seats in the 70-member Assembly.

The polling is scheduled for February 7 and the counting of votes will be taken up on the February 10.
