Chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday released an audio-visual theme song for the Delhi Assembly elections that showcased the achievements of the Congress government in the last 15 years.

Penned by famous lyricist Prasoon Joshi, the three-minute theme song ‘Nahin Rukegi Meri Dilli’ talks about the need to sustain the ongoing development works in the next five years and how the pace of development is going to result in another victory for the Congress.

“Nehi Rukegi Meri Dilli. Anubhav Hei, Raftar hei, Congress phir isbaar hei (My Delhi will not stop. There is experience and there is momentum; Congress once again),” goes the starting lines of the song that has been voiced by Daler Mehndi.

The song is powered by visuals dating back to the launch as well as implementation of various welfare schemes and infrastructure projects. The video shows Dikshit interacting with common men from all sections of the society and have been synchronised with the lyrics.

Dikshit said the short song would be screened in theatres as well as in all the constituencies through mobile vans.

“We are going to the polls with full confidence,” Dikshit said after a special screening of the song video for the media at her residence. Her cabinet colleagues Harun Yusuf, Arvinder Singh and senior MLA Mukesh Sharma were present on the occasion.
