As Prime Minister Man-mohan Singh and Congress leaders Sonia and Rahul Gandhi “focused on national issues”, even Dikshit chose not to refer to the state BJP or IAC leaders.
On Sunday itself, IAC accused the Congress of pushing the country into a ditch and the Delhi BJP observed a ‘black day’ across the Capital to protest the Ramlila rally.
Mukesh Sharma, parliamentary secretary to Dikshit, explained, “It was a national stage. But Rahul ji did praise the chief minister for an unprecedented growth Delhi has seen. It’s a huge confidence booster.”
“It’s (the praise) is an achievement for us and an acknowledgement for the kind of work the chief minister has been doing for the last 14-15 years. We’re geared up for the next elections and today’s turnout shows people will make her (Dikshit) Delhi’s chief minister for the fourth time,” he said.
