Kiran Bedi has pulled off the impossible. The supposed supercop has parachuted her way into the Delhi BJP leadership slot after waiting on the sidelines and intermittently showering praises at the party leadership from time to time for years. With the elections round the corner the time for courtship is over and its time to jump into the dirty world of politics whose sworn enemy she once was. Her Krane landing has been so immaculate that the BJP top brass has in addition to offering her the CM post in advance even agreed to cut down Modi’s face time on the Delhi campaign in order to make room for her (sort of an icing on the cake). Talk about having the cake and eating it too with icing on it!
