New Delhi, Jan 20: A day after BJP announced that former IPS officer Kiran Bedi would be the party's chief minister candidate for Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal congratulated Bedi and invited her to a debate.
Kejriwal on Monday said: "Congrats for being nominated as the BJP's CM candidate. I invite you for a public debate moderated by a neutral person and telecast by all."

Meanwhile, Bedi too accepted the challenge and said: "I accept the challenge. We can debate on the floor of the House." Kejriwal said that the debate can take place anywhere. "We can have the debate anywhere, Jantar Mantar or Ramlila Maidan," he said.
Bedi also said that she believes in delivering unlike Kejriwal. "Arvind Kejriwal has only been debating, I believe in delivering," she said. On the other hand Kejriwal even requested Bedi to unblock him on Twitter:
.@thekiranbedi Kiranji, i used to follow u on twitter. Now, u have blocked me on twitter. Kindly unblock me.— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) January 20, 2015
Kiran Bedi, who seemed confident of the elections will begin her campaign starting on Monday. Kejriwal even challenged Congress leader Ajay Maken to the debate and the latter accepted it.
