Union Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has won this important Krishna Nagar seat for the five times.

On her way to file nomination, Bedi had interactions with rickshaw pullers, cleanliness staffs and youth over various issues concerning to the people of Delhi.

Bedi had joined the BJP and the party declared her name as its Chief Ministerial candidate. This decision by the BJP leadership is being seen as a game changer and now, it is expected that the party will have a decisive lead over AAP of Arvind Kerjiwal.

Kejriwal has for months been running a propaganda against the BJP by releasing posters showing him contender of Chief Minister post against senior BJP leader Jagdish Mukhi. To win election this time, the AAP convener has been making tall claims and misleading them once again, whom he had left in midway last time when he resigned in February 2014 from the Office of Delhi Chief Minister to contest Lok Sabha election.

Kejriwal is now a days often seen saying that people have forgiven for ditching them in midway.

Kiran Bedi, 65, is India's first woman IPS officer and had been associated with anti-corruption movement spearheaded by Anna Hazare. She has also been associated with drive for upliftment of weaker section of the society especially the women folk.

She is seen by BJP leadership as most suited contender for the top job in Delhi given the agenda of development and good governance which has been key issue for the party in all the recent elections.

As a police officer in various capacities, Bedi’s track record has been excellent and she received Ramon Magsaysay Award for Government Service in 1994.

Under Congress's one and half decade rule, Delhi was often termed as crime capital given huge rise in criminal activities especially against the women.

Safety and security among women was a key election issue in the last Assembly election in December 2013.

Serving for long years in Delhi as an IPS officer along with her stint as head of Tihar Jail Inspector General in early 1990s, it is hoped that with Bedi as Chief Minister will sincerely address the issue of deteriorating law and order which will help the National Capital to emerge as the capital of peace and prosperity.
