India's first woman IPS officer Kiran Bedi has said that she could have become the first woman police chief of the national capital had she made some compromises.
"I could have compromised to become the Delhi CP but I did not. Had I done so, my self-esteem would have gone down," Bedi said at a day-long symposium titled 'Women Changing India' organised by USA's Barnard College on Friday.
During the panel discussion on 'Conversations on Social Activism,' the cop-turned-activist said some bureaucrats and politicians "conspired" to see that Delhi did not get a woman police chief.
The session also had Mirai Chatterjee, director of social security at Self Employed Women's Association and Shaheen Mistri, founder of Teach for India, as speakers.
