Bedi apologises but asks BJP to introspect Defeat
February 10, 2015 06:51 PM
BJP's chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi Tuesday apologised to her party for letting it down after she lost from a constituency seen as a 'safe seat' by the party, but demonstrated her ignorance about the city by admitting how she discovered during the campaign the yawning gap between the haves and have-nots. Bedi, who served Delhi as an Indian Police Service officer at various levels and took voluntary retirement while she was director of the Bureau of Police Research and Development, also admitted she got to know Delhi only after she started her campaign. She admitted her lack of knowledge about Delhi, and said the campaigning gave her a chance to know the city. "I am very happy I got to do this, because this showed me the real situation of Delhi. I was troubled with what I saw... the divide between urban rich and urban poor... There is a mammoth gap," she said. In a strange admission, she also said she was not charged "even a rupee" for fighting the election, adding that it was "rare" that this happened. "I want to thank the BJP leadership which reposed trust in me. I apologise to every worker of the party, I could not fulfill their expectation," she said. Minutes later, the former police officer in response to a question retorted: "I have not lost... let the BJP assess (why they lost), they are a national cadre-based party. I have not lost, I gave my very best." Bedi lost the Krishna Nagar constituency to a little known lawyer, S.K. Bagga, by 2,277 votes. Source: IANS

"It is a change for which the people of Delhi voted," Parekh, chairman of Housing Development Finance Corporation told reporters in Mumbai on the sidelines of an event. "I think what has impacted Delhi elections is that in the last seven-eight months nothing changed there when it was under the L-G (Lieutenant Governor) role. It may have upset the people," he said. According to Parekh, only time will tell how AAP delivers on its promises of cheaper power and access to water. Source: IANS
Veteran Delhi legislator finally loses
February 10, 2015 05:06 PM
Shoaib Iqbal, for long considered invincible in Delhi assembly elections, Tuesday finally lost -- to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Iqbal, a party hopper, was first elected in 1993 from the Muslim-dominated Matia Mahal constituency in Old Delhi. He was then a candidate of the Janata Dal. He won again in 1998. In 2003, he was elected as a Janata Dal-Secular nominee. When he won in 2008, he belonged to the Lok Janshakti Party. And in 2013 he was the sole Janata Dal-United legislator in the house. This time, he fought on Congress ticket and was routed -- like all other 69 Congress candidates. Source: IANS

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Candidates List

The party that has been enjoying a supreme run of consecutive victories in various elections for sometime now — the BJP — is apparently upbeat about 2015 Delhi Assembly Polls too. May be that was the reason why the party did not announce any candidate’s
name till the last minute. A number of non-BJP and other public figures joined the BJP bandwagon The party welcomed former top cop Kiran Bedi, ex-AAP member Shazia Ilmi, former UPA Minister Krishna Tirath and the first man to raise his voice against the AAP, Vinod Kumar Binny, amongst others.

In the 2013 Delhi legislative Assembly elections, the BJP had won 32 seats falling four short of the clear majority mark, but this time the political analysts are of the view that it might grab seats in excess of 40.

The BJP released the candidate list for the Delhi Assembly elections on January 19, 2015, just two days prior to the last date of filing the nominations. Amongst the 62 names announced initially, some of the recognisable faces were those of Kiran Bedi, Jagdish Mukhi, Krishna Tirath, Vinod Binny, Anil Jha, Manoj Shokeen, Vijender Gupta and RP Singh, to name a few. The BJP fielded a young leader Nupur Sharma against Arvind Kejriwal from the New Delhi constituency.

The CM Candidate of BJP

Against the trend followed by the BJP in a number of Assembly elections recently, the party finally announced its chief ministerial candidate for the Assembly elections of Delhi. On 19 January 2015, former Indian Police Services (IPS) officer Kiran Bedi was named the chief ministerial candidate of BJP. Bedi is the first woman to rise to officer’s rank of IPS in India. as Apart from being a top cop, is a social activist as well. Her tenure as the Director General of Police and IG, Tihar prison in Delhi is widely-acclaimed.

Kiran Bedi, a non-political figure previously, was inducted into the BJP fold on 15 January 2015. Bedi promises good governance in Delhi, if she is elected to power. She gives priority to improving security of women and the law and order situation in the city.
