Kiran sings RSS paeans, Anna miffed

If Kiran Bedi’s entry into the Bharatiya Janata Party left her former mentor Anna Hazare sulking, her latest utterances on the RSS has left him totally disenchanted. On Wednesday, Kiran Bedi, the BJP’s Chief Ministerial nominee for Delhi, today described the Sangh as “very nationalistic” that has kept India united.

The 65-year-old Bedi, who has been pitchforked to a leadership role within days of joining BJP, also felt that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a right-wing organisation, was a very disciplined outfit and has been contributing significantly to nation building.

“They( RSS) are very nationalistic. I would think here is an organisation which kept India together, which has kept India neat,” Bedi told PTI in an exclusive interview. The former IPS officer, who was a core member of Team Anna till about two years back along with Kejriwal before they parted ways, said the AAP leader’s agitation at Rajpath within a month of becoming Chief Minister(on December 28, 2013) had “ticked” her off very much.It was after Kejriwal’s protest at Rajpath that she thought of joining politics to save Delhi from “confrontational politics”, she said.
