After the loss of BJP Chief Ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi from Krishna Nagar, her husband Brij Bedi on Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should appoint her on some constitutional post to make best use of her abilities.
“Prime Minister is a visionary leader and he can make use of Kiran’s services in nation building by appointing her on some constitutional post. Her experience would come handy,” Bedi told The Indian Express, while maintaining that politics was never Kiran’s cup of tea.

“Kiran Bedi is not a politician. It was BJP who approached her. She was a last-minute entry to bring strength to BJP campaign. The BJP cadre failed to deliver. I think there was acceptance problem after Kiran was declared as CM candidate and Kiran could not assimilate with the BJP cadre. In the end, BJP ended having shot at its own feet. It was like a road roller at work in Delhi. It is unbelievable. Only three seats out of 70 for BJP! Nobody could have imagined this (kind of results) even in the wildest dreams,” said Brij Bedi, claiming he had talked to Kiran twice over phone on Tuesday, second time after she was declared lost from Krishna Nagar.
“I told her that we should not have lost. She told me that she was strong and I need not worry,” said Brij, who runs a school for children of economically weaker sections of society in Maqboolpura locality in Amritsar.
“That she lost from the seat which was won comprehensively by BJP in last polls shows that party cadre failed to deliver for her. Had she won and BJP came to power, she would have made Krishna Nagar Paris,” Brij said.
Brij, who did not go to Delhi for canvassing for Kiran, said AAP came to power due to the youth vote bank and the poor. “While BJP was over-confident, AAP managed to win over the youth and the poor with tall promises,” he said.
