Kiran Bedi joins the BJP and the Twitterati join issues
Former IPS officer and activist Kiran Bedi has joined the BJP and speculation regarding her candidature for the Delhi chief minister’s post, to take on AAP’s Arvind Kejriwal, is rife.
The announcement has been trending big on Twitter — welcomed and dissed equally. We bring you cross section of what the Twitterati have to say.
Expected more originality from Kiran Bedi. Oh please, spare us the platitudes : I am here to serve – not to win elections. Yawn!

Kiran Bedi has joined BJP. I was once told by someone that if u do not have anything good to say about someone, do not say anything at all.

BJP: Kiran Bedi is joining us. She worked for many years in Tihar Jail. Congress: Meh! So did many of our people.

Deleting Tweets, shows #KiranBedi has No Inner Strengh to face criticism & explain her earlier viewpoints. Taking the Easy Way Out. Thx.
