New Delhi, Jan 20: In the battleground of Delhi, everyone is trying their best to make it a win-win situation for themselves and their party and is leaving no stone unturned to do so.

With no face for Delhi polls, it seemed BJP would have to rely just on PM Narendra Modi's wave but just a few days ahead of polls, the saffron party pulled in former IAS officer Kiran Bedi who has now been declared as the Chief Ministerial candidate in Delhi.

AAP Vs BJP in Delhi poll: People still prefer Arvind Kejriwal over Kiran Bedi.
But it seems that people have not really liked this move of the party.

A pre poll survey by ABP News-Nielsen recently brought to light "how the city feels with the recent induction of Kiran Bedi into BJP."

As soon as Bedi was inducted in the party, it was being said that she is the right candiadte who will give AAP's chief Arvind Kejriwal a proper fight.

When the respondents were asked in the survey that hasformer top cop Kiran Bedi taken a right step by joining the saffron brigade or it would have been beetre for her to join the Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party, mixed reactions came.

"43.8% of respondents told us that they would have liked her to join the Aam Aadmi Party. 32.9% felt she took the right decision to join BJP. Less than one third of respondents (23%) claim that it does not matter to them which party Bedi joins," the survey revealed.

When people were asked will Kiran Bedi joining the BJP imapct your voting decision, "Majority of the respondents (61.6%) claimed that even if Kiran Bedi is announced as BJP's CM candidate it will not impact their voting decision while 38.4% said it will impact their decision."

The survey which was conducted between 17th January to 19th January, 2015 amongst 1489 respondents also revealed that, "AAP seems to be getting higher support from Women respondents' regardless of Kiran Bedi joining BJP."

It seems despite Kiran Bedi joining the BJP, Arvind Kejriwal remains the top choice for CM candidate in Delhi but Bedi is giving tough competition to the AAP chief as 47% respondents want to see Kejriwal as their CM while 43.9% people voted for the former IPS officer and Congress's Ajay Maken got 6.7% of votes.
