People voted for Congress’ development agenda: Dikshit

New Delhi: With the Congress appearing set to make a hat-trick in the Delhi assembly elections, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday said the people of the national capital voted for the party’s development agenda.

“I congratulate the people of Delhi and many many thanks to them for their support and affection for the Congress," the 71-year-old leader said at her residence as jubilant party supporters danced to drumbeats and burst firecrackers.

“We went to the polls on the development ground with honesty and unity, and people have voted for that," Dikshit said. The party has won five seats and leading in 31 others so far.

On BJP’s poll campaign on the issue of terrorism, Dikshit said, “Nobody should play politics over terror attacks and all parties should join hands in defeating terrorism."

She said improving the lives of people would be the first priority of her government besides continuing the development of Delhi.

When asked to give some statements on her rival and BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate Vijay Kumar Malhotra, she simply said, “No comment please".
