BJP Has 'World's Most Beautiful Face': Kiran Bedi's Reply to AAP on PM Modi

New Delhi:  Days after joining the BJP, former Indian Police Service or IPS officer Kiran Bedi today said with Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the leader of the party, the BJP has with it the "world's most beautiful face". The comment came as a rebuttal to Aam Admi Party or AAP's claim that she was brought in by the BJP because it did not have a face of its own in Delhi.

"The BJP has got the world's most beautiful face with it, Narendra Modi and his leadership. After that we are just stars who are revolving around him," said the former team Anna member.

"Delhi will get all its resources from the central government and it is the Centre which will give us energy," Ms Bedi told reporters.

The AAP attacked the BJP over the induction of Ms Bedi, saying that it has been done to shield Prime Minister Modi in the event of the party's defeat in the upcoming Assembly elections.

Ms Bedi, who will contest the February 7 polls, had yesterday rejected the Congress's charge that she had used Anna Hazare to fulfil her political ambitions, saying that joining the anti- corruption crusader was the "right thing to do" during the Lokpal agitation.

Congress leader Ajay Maken has alleged that Ms Bedi and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal were "opportunists of the first order".

Mr Maken, who is the the Congress's campaign chief for Delhi polls, had alleged that both Mr Kejriwal and Ms Bedi had furthered their political ambitions behind Anna Hazare's back.

Ms Bedi, 65, entered the BJP fold in the presence of its Chief Amit Shah and Union ministers Arun Jaitley and Harsh Vardhan at the party's headquarters in Delhi on January 15.

Mr Kejriwal and Ms Bedi were part of Anna Hazare's core team as he led a massive agitation to press for the passage of the Jan Lokpal Bill in Parliament. The two had parted ways in 2012 after Mr Kejriwal's decision to float the Aam Aadmi Party.
