    This is what Kiran Bedi is. Those who are unfairly trying to show her in poor light, must read her achievements, her contributions and her Bio.

    Nobody is 100% perfect in this world. But from the time she is being projected as Chief Ministerial Candidate for Delhi, the experts in propagating only negatives are unfairly not speaking about her capabilities as a strong administrator and her clean and non corrupt image in social life.

    Yes those who want to target her character with political motives they can go on doing it till the cows come home. But every one of us forgets that, nobody, nobody is 100% perfect in this world. What´s important is to see… if the candidate is Honest or not and is capable of delivering. That ´s all. We don’t need politicians that we have been seeing for the last 67 years We don’t even need a smooth talker who is but Zero on performance and delivery. We don’t need an orator who can mesmerize audience but dishonest to the core.

    Today, we need.for Delhi an able strong, strict, administrator who can take on Mafia Raj, Drug lords, Rapist and criminals who are working with the corrupt local government officials in a place like Delhi which is a Capital city of India.

    It is a shame that because mafia want Delhi to be powered on Generators, water mafia want drinking water to be sold in tankers to Delhi residents, Transport mafia want their buses to run on Delhi roads, Police are not capable of providing safety to women and Rapes are on rise. Corruption in government offices, police, traffic dept. is deep rooted, Slums are growing by the blessings of corrupt politicians and India´s capital city Delhi has highest pollution?

    When will Delhi Change And Who will Change Delhi? These corrupt politicians?

    If Delhi does not choose a good administrator who has 40 long years of clean and proven track record of efficient and effective administrative experience, it would be only unfortunate story.

    Forget all your negative politics and unfair judgements being passed to paint everyone with black paint. We need to rise above from petty politics and judge people fairly from their merits.

    May be this country is suffering from bad, poor and corrupt governance because we choose wrong people for wrong reasons and then justify ourselves. We all need to get out of that bias political mindset and look at our options with the right perspectives. We might find right solutions to our problems

    Kiran Bedi does not come from political background that itself is one good merit. We need people in governance who are selfless, and do not play political games with the electorate.

    Think about it and then shoot.

    I hope after getting elected as a CM-of Delhi she will not join the group of Black-money makers. All the great people speak and promise so many things to accomplish, but, in India right from Jawahar lal Nehru to till date the India’s prime concerned problems are not been solved. Bribery, corruption, and criminals in politics, black money in Swiss banks and what not.? We Indians believe everybody. But, finally no appropriate solution for all these problems haven’t found. Jai Hind.
