BJP from inside has nothing to do with it.
granted she was approached to contest as cm last year but she refused citing possible prosecution by Congress
but there were others who did contest on bjp tikit Gen. VK Singh an example
currently bjp people thinks she blinked under fire which is a big nooooo for an important post of cm
you confirm what I had suspected - that Kiran Bedi did not jump into politics on the side of Modi due to some sort of pressure on her. It did show her cowardice, but one doesn't know what was the nature of pressure, if her family was being threatened, etc...
But since before the elections, Kiran Bedi has spoken in favor of Modi, through the media and through social media. She has also shown to be spiritually Hindu, having contacts with Sri Sri, etc.
Also after Delhi elections and before AAP made its govt. in Delhi, she was busy on the side of Anna Hazare, trying to get the Lokpal Bill through Parliament, and thus she took away a good bit of AAP's agenda from them.
I think BJP needs a two-pronged strategy to counter AAP. One: do heavy canvassing of Dalit votes in Delhi, door-to-door campaigning and secondly use someone like Kiran Bedi to deflate Arvind Kejriwal in front of Delhi's middle class.
i do think, she can work quite well with NaMo.
Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Meenakshi Lekhi, Smriti Irani are all in Parliament, and they should remain there. I don't like people being shifted to national and state level arbitrarily. If BJP wanted to have Dr. Harsh Vardhan as Delhi CM, what was the need to have him stand in elections as an MP candidate. BJP could have chosen someone else.
Even with Smriti Irani, having her run in multiple elections so soon after the other, sounds funny. She has done her bit in Amethi and she should be given some rest.
