In her first press conference after the announcement of her defeat, BJP's chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi said "I have not lost," and added that she will continue as a member of the national party.

Bedi, who was waiting for the official results of the Krishna Nagar constituency from Election Commission before addressing the press, apologised to the Karyakartas of BJP for not standing up to their expectations. "I personally witnessed the hard work put in by the BJP karyakartas during the campaigning. With hardly three hours of sleep each day, I too gave in my best efforts," she said.

But she refused to accept defeat and said, "I have not lost. I would have accepted defeat if I had not given my best efforts. It is for the party to analyse the reasons behind the defeat."

Wishing Aam Admi Party (AAP) for their stupendous victory in the Delhi Assembly Elections, she urges Arvind Kejriwal to ensure that all the promises made by the party in the election manifesto should be fulfilled at the earliest. "The divide between urban rich and poor is at its highest and middle class. AAP has to match up to their words," Bedi added.

When asked if she would remain with BJP, Bedi responded that the party's leadership was in good hands and that she was proud to be a part of it.
