Dikshit confident of victory in Delhi polls

New Delhi: Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday enthused confidence that Delhiites will give Congress a record third consecutive term in power as she exercised her franchise during the polling for the Delhi Assembly elections.

Dikshit also said that the Mumbai terror attacks is not likely to have any impact on Delhi voters and asked not to politicise the issue.

She drove to the polling booth at Nirman Bhavan here around 9:30am and cast her vote.

Flashing a “V" sign, she said, “Obviously people will vote for the Congress which has provided better infrastructure and development to the city."

On BJP raising the issue of Mumbai attacks, Dikshit said, “I think people of Delhi like those in other parts, including Mumbai, know how it happened. We have to defend our sovereignty.

“Look at the number of people who died. Our heart goes out for them. This is not a political matter. Don’t trivialise and politicise the issue," she said.
