GN Bureau | January 16, 2015




In an interesting development in less than a month’s time before Delhi assembly polls, two former associates of Arvind Kejriwal have joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The BJP on the other hand has got the faces for upcoming polls in Delhi.

While former IPS officer and anti-corruption activist Kiran Bedi joined the party on Thursday, former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Shazia Ilmi joined the BJP a day after.

Party chief Amit Shah said Bedi will contest Delhi polls.

Bedi is slated to give a tough fight to AAP convenor Arvind Kejriwal, whom she supported earlier during anti-corruption movement in team Anna.

Earlier, there were speculations that BJP would project her as CM candidate in Delhi, much before she joined the party.

Delhi will go to polls on February 7.
