With Kiran Bedi, the Bharatiya Janata Party hopes to corner a big chunk of middle class votes of AAP and on Monday the party took another calculated step to snatch AAP’s dalit supporters with the induction of Krishna Tirath.
Krishna Tirath, who was a minister in Manmohan Singh government, has joined BJP. She will be BJP’s dalit cum women face of the party in the Delhi elections.
'My role in the party will be decided by Amit Shah, but I will work for the people,' Tirath said after meeting the BJP chief.
Surprised Congress leaders were guarded in their reactions to Tirath’s defection. Congress leader and party’s chief campaigner in Delhi Ajay Maken told reporters "it shows the nervousness of BJP."
