New Delhi: A day after dropping hints of joining politics, former IPS officer and Team Anna member Kiran Bedi on Wednesday said she was ready to become the BJP's Chief Ministerial nominee in Delhi if such an offer was made to her.


“I will consider myself to be ready for it if such an offer is made,” she said. The former IPS officer was asked if she would become the BJP's Chief Ministerial candidate in case of fresh elections in Delhi.

The BJP had projected Harsh Vardhan as the party's Chief Ministerial candidate in the Assembly polls in December last year. Vardhan has won the Lok Sabha election from Chandni Chowk and there is speculation that Bedi may be considered the BJP's Chief Ministerial candidate in the next assembly polls.

Bedi, who has been heaping praise on Narendra Modi in the past couple of months, yesterday dropped hints of joining politics. “I no more rule out entering Indian political service on capability basis. I am moving towards some flexibility in this,” she had tweeted.
