Seeking to hardsell development of Delhi in the areas of transport, education and power supply as well as the UPA’s achievements like the Food Security Bill, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi today expressed confidence that the party would come back to power in Delhi in the December 4 state assembly elections.
Addressing a huge rally in Mangolpuri in North West Delhi, his first election rally in the city ahead of the December 4 Assembly polls, Rahul sought to showcase the achievements of the Sheila Dikshit Government in the last 15 years. Mr Gandhi said the Congress party and Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had changed the face of the city in the last 15 years.
‘’Sheilaji has changed Delhi. For instance, today, the Metro is criss-crossing across the city. Infact, other state governments have expressed interest in bringing Metro to their states.
‘’In Jakarta, Indonesia, people are giving examples of this metro.There has been a revolutionary change in the transport scenario in the state over the last ten years. Almost 130 flyovers have been built in Delhi. ‘’Power cuts in Delhi are now a thing of the past. Also, Delhi is now an educational hub,’’ Mr Gandhi said at the hugely attended rally, which was also addressed by Ms Dikshit, DPCC chief J P Aggarwal, AICC General secretary in-charge for Delhi Shakeel Ahmed and Union Minister Krishna Teerath.
