New Delhi: Former IPS officer Kiran Bedi, who recently joined Bharatiya Janata Party, on Sunday pitched hard to replicate the Gujarat model of Governance in Delhi. She said, "When I went to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, I told him that we will use more technology. If Gujarat can use video conference in every village then why can't Delhi."

While addressing a public meeting in the national capital, Bedi also emphasised on key issues like security, literacy and cleanliness in the city.

She said, " Five things that need to adopted for Delhi are sanskari Dilli, saksham Dilli, sakshar Dilli, swastha Dilli and surakshit Dilli."

There are speculations that she will soon be announced as the chief ministerial candidate for the party but Bedi's road to CM candidacy have some hurdles.

According to the sources, one section of the party has expressed reservations over naming her as they don't want the leadership position being given to an outsider. They also want BJP to stick to the practice of not naming a CM candidate in advance.

Sixty-five-year-old Bedi was inducted into the BJP fold in the presence of party President Amit Shah and Union ministers Arun Jaitley and Harsh Vardhan at the party's headquarters on Thursday.
