The most visible developments in the city during Sheila Dikshit's 13-year-old tenure are the flyovers and overall improved road infrastructure, according to most resident welfare associations (RWAs) in Delhi.

"It used to take hours to reach any part of south Delhi from west Delhi a decade ago but flyovers have made our lives much easier," said Gulshan Rai of Janakpuri RWA.

PK Roy, Secretary, EPDP Association, CR Park, agrees but says the BRT corridor is a minus point.

Roy said Sheila Dikshit's government has performed satisfactorily in comparison to many other states and also keeping in mind the limitations posed by multiplicity of authorities in the Capital.

"The main problems we face are related to agencies like the Delhi Police, MCD and DDA where the Chief Minister doesn't have much role," said Pankaj Aggarwal of Delhi RWAs Joint Front.

On the government's Bhagidari Scheme, which sought to rope in RWAs in development work, there is a mixed reaction.

"The government is more citizen friendly and listens to people but Bhagidari has not worked well, despite good intentions of the CM," said Roy.
