Congress leader Ajay Maken today said he was ready for a “structured debate” with Kiran Bedi and Arvind Kejriwal, who are chief ministerial candidates of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Aamd Aadmi Party (AAP) respectively ahead of the Delhi Assembly Elections 2015.

Responding to AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal’s challenge to BJP’s Kiran Bedi for a public debate, Maken said, “This will be a healthy tradition. I believe a structured debate should take place in a mutually accepted TV channel or agency moderated by a mutually accepted anchor”.

Ajay Maken, who is also the party’s Campaign Committee Chief, said a debate will enable the leadership of various parties to spell out their vision to the public by answering “difficult questions”.

Through a tweet, tagging both Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi, Ajay Maken said, “”Great! I am ready for a structured debate. Let people of Delhi make a comparative assessment.”
