Days after DPCC president J P Agrawal claimed she had "no role" in Congress's win in Delhi, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Sunday sought to downplay the remarks, saying the victory was an outcome of "collective efforts" of workers and the leadership of the party.
"Congress won because of the hard work of its members and the leadership of Sonia Gandhi ji and Rahul Gandhi. It is because of them that the party has registered historic victory since 1984," Dikshit said at a function at DPCC office here.
She advised the party leaders not to be complacent and avoid taking credit for the win which is an outcome of "collective efforts".
"No one should be in the illusion that the party has won because of a particular person. It's a win for all of us and of every Congress member," she said.
Dikshit's views assume significance in view of Agrawal's earlier remarks, "There was no role of Sheila Dikshit... "
Dikshit said people of Delhi have many expectations from the newly elected Congress MPs, "whom they have supported form their heart" and it is "our duty to live up to their aspirations".
"People of Delhi have extended their full support to the party and it is now our duty to come up to their expectations and fulfil our promises," Dikshit said.
