Kiran Bedi is most likely to join the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and contest in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.


Strong news making circles suggest that she is most likely to be fielded from Chandni Chowk in Delhi, thus fighting elections against Congress' Kapil Sibal and AAP's Ashutosh.

Kiran Bedi created much-hype in January this year when she openly praised BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on microblogging website twitter.

Bedi twitted: " For me it is India First! Stable, Well Governed, Administered, Accountable and Inclusive. As an independent voter, my vote is for NaMo."

Also the former IPS officer had in October last year, while delivering a speech in Ahmedabad, backed Modi.

"The man is delivering and has brought good development in Gujarat. His nomination (as BJP's PM candidate) brings more clarity among voters to make their choices," she had said.
