With Lok Sabha polls around the corner, the BJP is putting its house in order before preparing to take on the AAP in the general elections.
With ticket hopefuls thronging the party office and senior leaders’ houses, Delhi BJP chief Vijay Goel is likely to be accommodated in Rajya Sabha from Rajasthan. Plans are also afoot to try and field Kiran Bedi from New Delhi, to pitch her against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, making it Anna Hazare versus Kejriwal fight.
Goel said, “I will do as my party asks me to do. I am a worker and if they ask me to go to Rajya Sabha, I will abide by it.”

According to sources, the party is in talks with Bedi to accept the proposal to fight from New Delhi. It is learnt that Bedi is reluctant to fight from the seat, which may also see Kejriwal as a Lok Sabha candidate. “We are in talks with Bedi but she has not accepted the offer as yet,” a senior BJP leader said.
When contacted, Bedi said, “They might make an offer, but I have always maintained that I am not politically inclined.”
Most of the sitting MLAs too are in the race to get MP tickets as they believe that general elections may give them chances than sitting in the opposition in Delhi. “We would not have asked for the MP tickets had we got a government in Delhi. Now many of us believe that fighting the Lok Sabha polls would be better,” a BJP MLA said.
There are many first time MLAs too who are pitching hard for Lok Sabha tickets.
