Seems BJP is still confused in who's name it should seek votes in the poll bound state of Delhi. The party may have declared former IPS officer, Kiran Bedi, as its chief ministerial candidate for the upcoming Assembly polls in Delhi but the party is still seeking votes in the name of its poster boy Narendra Modi.

BJP still relying on Modi wave in Delhi?
As per an Indian Express report, party strategists are still confused whether Bedi should be projected and votes should be sought in her name or in the name of Modi - a tried and tested strategy.

The new ad campaign for Delhi which was launched by the party on Tuesday features only PM Modi. It doesn't has a mention of Bedi, who is supposed to be the party's face in the run up to Delhi polls.

"Dilli ko meri Dilli ko thoda sa pyar chahiye, kaam karne wali Modi sarkaar chahiye. Jo sabka hak dilaye, kanoon suraksha laye, nari ka maan badhayen, Dilli ki shaan badhaye... kaam karne wali Modi sarkaar chahiye, Modi sarkaar chahiye," reads a new poster.

Kiran Bedi on Wednesday filed her nomination papers from the Krishna Nagar constituency for the Feb 7 Assembly polls.

Bedi reached the sub-divisional magistrate's (SDM) office around noon. She was accompanied by senior leaders Harsh Vardhan, Vijay Goel, Maheish Girri and Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay.

Before filing her nomination, Bedi participated in a roadshow from the Lala Lajpat Rai chowk which culminated at the SDM's office.

"I hope people will accept me and vote for the BJP," Bedi told reporters before filing her nominations.

Krishna Nagar is considered to be a traditional stronghold of the saffron brigade.

The vote count takes place Feb 10.
