"I haven't lost. I gave it all my best, I would lose if I wouldn't have given my best. BJP as a party has lost," said Bedi, who also suffered a shock defeat from the party's bastion Krishna Nagar.
    
The 65-year-old activist-turned-politician said the BJP should reflect on why it had managed to win only 3 out of 70 seats.
    
"Let the BJP introspect. It is a very interesting national cadre-based party. I hope BJP will do its reflection and I am sure you will understand and get to know why the BJP lost," she said.
    
Calling herself an integral part of BJP, Bedi also hoped that she would get to know why the party was defeated in such a way.
    
She said she would continue to work for the people of Krishna Nagar, from where she lost, as the area lacks various amenities and does not have a clean environment.
    
Veteran BJP leader and Union minister Harsh Vardhan had been winning the seat before he vacated it after emerging victorious in the Lok Sabha election.
    
"I got all the respect and confidence of the top leaders including Narendra Modi and Amit Shah as well as ordinary party workers. But I ask for their forgiveness as I failed to carry that confidence and responsibility," Bedi said.
    
"This is the first time I felt like this in my entire career as a police officer. I have never had to face such a situation," she added.
    
Bedi also congratulated Arvind Kejriwal on AAP's spectacular victory and expressed hope that it will fulfil the promises made to Delhiites.
    
"I hope Arvind and his party will now transform Delhi into a world class city and fulfil their promises by providing all the facilities to the poor as soon as possible," she said.
