New Delhi, Jan 10: Kiran Bedi shocked many with his tweet showing open support to Narendra Modi but she failed to surprise Arvind Kejriwal -- her former partner in anti-corruption movement with Anna Hazare.

Kejriwal, the youngest chief minister of Delhi, on Friday, Jan 10 said that he was not "upset" with Bedi's endorsement for Modi, the PM candidate of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Standing by her choice in the Lok Sabha elections, retired IPS officer Bedi said that her comment of "voting for Narendra modi" was an independent choice.

As an independent voter, my vote is for NaMo (Narendra Modi)

"As an independent voter, my vote is for NaMo (Narendra Modi)," said she. On asking the reason behind her choice, she said,"In order to end the chaos due to corruption in the last three years in Congress's regime, we are looking for stability, growth and prosperity."

Clearing all airs about her leaving Anna's side, she said,"For me, it is India first. I am speaking as an independent individual , not aligned to any particular party. We have an alternative and a tested alternative.I have not left the company of Anna Hazare. This is an independent voice."

"Everything is crumbling. I am not in any ideology or manifesto. The time is for united and stable government. The Congress and the BJP are the two national parties; we do not want back door entry of Congress and we need to run the government from the front door. We should give majority vote and not fragmented vote," she added.

Condemning the ways of Congress, Bedi said that it was a party that did not hesitate to join hands with other parties to form a government. "They do not believe in getting defeated," she said sarcastically.
