Chief minister Sheila Dikshit is scheduled to address as many as seven rallies in the city on Monday. The BJP too will have heavyweights like leader of opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Delhi BJP incharge Nitin Gadkari campaign.

On Sunday too, Dikshit addressed seven rallies on a day that saw over 25 rallies and scores of road shows with campaigners from either camps exchanging blows.

On the one hand, Dikshit accused the opposition parties of misleading people of Delhi to grab power and asked people to vote for "continuity" and "inclusive development".

"We have changed the face of Delhi in the last 15 years. But the task is not yet finished. We need your support to continue the development agenda," Dikshit said addressing a rally in Kamla Nagar area in Model Town constituency.

On the other, BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi lambasted the Dikshit dispensation on various issues while appealing to people to use the opportunity to vote out the "corrupt" government which has been in power for 15 years.

"The Congress is completely submerged in corruption. The Sheila Dikshit government has totally failed to address any of the major problems in Delhi. You must oust it," Modi said addressing well-attended rally at Dakshinpuri in South Delhi.

BSP supremo Mayawati too tried to win over voters by addressing two rallies - one in Trilokpuri and another in Dwarka.

She attacked the UPA government, alleging that its wrong policies has lead to rise in the prices of essential commodities which has hit the country's poor and middle class hard.
