Confident Lekhi walks with promise of a ‘better tomorrow’

As the lady in white took to the streets of Seva Nagar market on Tuesday afternoon, the otherwise lazy environment was filled with hustle-bustle. Shoppers looked up, stopped and greeted, a few even took snaps on their mobile phone cameras, while some even went on with the entourage of their candidate as she walked ahead with a bright smile and promise of a “better tomorrow”.

As the lady in white took to the streets of Seva Nagar market on Tuesday afternoon, the otherwise lazy environment was filled with hustle-bustle. Shoppers looked up, stopped and greeted, a few even took snaps on their mobile phone cameras, while some even went on with the entourage of their candidate as she walked ahead with a bright smile and promise of a “better tomorrow”.

Even as the BJP candidate from the New Delhi parliamentary seat, Meenakshi Lekhi, walked on her campaign through bylanes and streets of even the farthest corners of her constituency, an air of post-poll celebration was evident. Crackers were burst. Rose petals flew in the air. Some supporters even broke into impromptu dance jigs. Drums rumbled like a war cry - “polls are here and we will win”.

“I am really happy for the love I am getting at all corners of the constituency from residents. The enthusiasm of party workers and supporters is my strength. We won’t breathe a sigh of relief till April 10. Till now in the name of development, the country has been butchered. Development in the right sense of the term is the call of the hour and we will get it. There will be a better tomorrow,” Lekhi, who is also a senior party spokesperson, said.

She chanted slogans, which were echoed on by the saffron-capped supporters, “Ek bharat sreshth bharat” and “Har har Modi”.

“We are winning all the seven seats in Delhi. Look at the enthusiasm of the people! They want BJP to come on top and Narendra Modi to become the prime minister,” Lekhi, the lone BJP woman candidate from Delhi, said.

She also took on sitting Congress MP Ajay Maken for alleged non-performance. “I have visited areas in this constituency like Prem bazaar and Punjabi Basti, where no work has been done. He (Maken) has not done his job,” Lekhi said.

Earlier in the day, Lekhi campaigned in Karol Bagh at Rock Garden, Chawla Bagh, East Patel Nagar, Prasad Nagar,West Patel Nagar, Kunwar Singh Chowk, Punjabi Basti and Ragarpura, Joshi Road.

She also visited Bindusaar Camp, near Kailash Hills, Masjid Moth in Malviya Nagar and took out a pad yatra from Durga Shiv Shakti to Sector 9 in RK Puram.
