Tytler unfazed, continues poll campaign

india Updated: Apr 08, 2009 21:42 IST

Unfazed by the ongoing controversy over his candidature, senior Congress leader Jagdish Tytler on Wednesday continue to campaign in his Northeast Delhi constituency and expressed confidence of winning the seat.

“I am confident that Congress will win the seat (Northeast Delhi) with the biggest margin in Delhi, whatever the media says,” he said while taking a dig at the media and added that “Congress does not divide people on religious lines”.

“One person may commit a mistake sometime, a Jagdish Tytler may commit mistake. But the party never commits mistakes. My party is great,” he told a gathering of teachers in Yamuna Vihar in New Delhi on Thursday.

Asked whether the shoe-throwing incident was a conspiracy and is there any dark cloud looming over his candidature, Tytler, an accused in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case did not give a direct reply but said, the “matter is coming up before the court tomorrow”.

Journalist Jarnail Singh had lobbed a shoe at Union Home Minister P Chidamabarm yesterday protesting against the clean chit given to Tytler by CBI in the case.
