"I have spent 35-40 years of my life in Delhi and want to devote my remaining life for its welfare," said Bedi.

Bedi, who is a BJP supporter, stated that the ‘Gujarat model needs to be implemented in Delhi’.

Bedi has been heaping praise on Prime Minister designate Narendra Modi in the past couple of months and, therefore, speculations are rife that the former IPS officer is likely to make her debut in politics with the saffron bandwagon.

Bedi, who was part of veteran social activist Anna Hazare’s core team during his agitation for a strong Lokpal Bill, has openly been hailing Modi's leadership.

"Feel as if the country was orphaned past several years. It finally has a guardian who is caring and capable! We can now focus on creativity," she tweeted after the election results were declared on May 16.

"All who were spreading lies and apprehensions about @narendramodi got punished!  Indian Voter saw it all! It's a victory of good intentions!" she said in another tweet.

Moreover, speculations are rife about Bedi being considered for the top post by the saffron party in Delhi as BJP’s Delhi unit chief Harsh Vardhan, who is among the seven newly-elected MPs from the national capital, is likely to become the Health Minister in Narendra Modi-led Cabinet.

Harsh Vardhan was the BJP’s chief ministerial candidate ahead of the Delhi Assembly elections in December last year.
