Former chief minister of Delhi, Sheila Dikshit on Monday expressed confidence that the Congress would form government for the third consecutive time in Haryana.

Interacting with mediapersons here, Dikshit held that the party was going with its unprecedented and inclusive development on all fronts to the voters who, she said, had seen through the hollow claims of “achhe din” of the BJP. Asked why was she faced a rout in the Delhi elections despite the fact there, too, development was ensured, she said people of Delhi probably sought a change because she was seeking a fourth term, while the Congress in Haryana was contesting for third term.

To a question that whether the Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Management Act, 2014, enacted by the Congress government would divide the community, she said it was on the demand of the Sikhs of Haryana who sought to run their shrines themselves.

Dikshit, however, refused to comment on the questions as to why former prime minister Manmohan Singh was not campaigning in Haryana and on AICC general secretary Shakeel Ahmad’s remarks that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is behaving like “sadak-chhaap neta”.
