Kiran Bedi will make better chief minister: Shanti Bhushan

New Delhi: AAP founding member Shanti Bhushan said Thursday that making Kiran Bedi the BJP's chief ministerial candidate in Delhi is a "master stroke" and she will make a better chief minister than AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal.

"Kiran and Arvind were both part of the Anna movement, it is definitely a master stroke by the BJP because it is a success of the Anna movement. People want somebody to be the chief minister who has an honest image...If a person who is a crusader against corruption becomes the chief minister, people will be happy," said Bhushan.

Bhushan was part of the Jan Lokpal movement and India Against Corruption led by social crusader Anna Hazare.

"Perhaps she would make a much better chief minister...," Bhushan told news channel Times Now.

"Last year Kejriwal has offered the post of chief minister to her. It means he felt she would make a better chief minister, but she did not join AAP. I think from very beginning, she had some pro-BJP mind-set. I would have preferred if she was with AAP and became the chief minister."

The former law minister also alleged that the ticket distribution in the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was faulty.

"In the ticket distribution, he (Kejriwal) has given tickets on the basis of winnability," he said.

Bhushan said that Bedi's nomination by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is the success of the anti-corruption movement.

"AAP's aim was to re-establish clean politics in the country. It has succeeded in the way it forced the BJP to bring Bedi in the party," he said.
