A day ago, ex-IPS officer Bedi had, on Twitter, declared her support for Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, who is the prime ministerial candidate of BJP.<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p>For me it's India First! Stable,Well Governed,Administered,Accountable and Inclusive.As a an independent voter,my vote is for NaMo</p>— Kiran Bedi (@thekiranbedi) <a href="https://twitter.com/thekiranbedi/statuses/421339656634920960">January 9, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Former army chief VK Singh had earlier shared dias with Modi. Both Bedi and Singh are close aides of anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare and the team's relationship with Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal has gone sour in the recent past. The AAP has formed government in Delhi with the support of Congress.
Bedi and Hazare were invited for the swearing-in ceremony of Kejriwal but the duo declined to attend the function. Bedi had tweeted earlier that "A khas aadmi is khas when he does khas work for aam aadmi without any expectations from aam admi in return!"
Bedi's support for Modi has given the BJP a chance to step up attack on the Congress. Modi had on Thursday took a dig at Manmohan Singh, saying that the Prime Minister is right when he said good days are ahead for the country. Modi hinted that after the Lok Sabha polls, BJP will dive the Congress government out. Modi's counter comes come after Manmohan Singh had last week said in his press conference that Modi as a PM will be disastrous for India.
