“People’s response towards Priyanka ji has been overwhelming. The high turnout of people during her roadshow even amazed us. Our campaign suddenly spiked after the arrival of Priyanka ji and Rahul ji,” said the three-time former chief minister.

Resisting from predicting the Lok Sabha result, the octogenarian leader said: “It is a three-sided contest between Congress, AAP, and BJP. But it is only the Congress party which has got an enviable record of bringing development to Delhi during our three terms.”

Contesting from North-East Delhi parliamentary constituency, Dikshit expressed concern over the delay in sending slips to the voters in her constituency.

“Voters in my constituency have not received voter slips by now. I have called the officials thrice and they have assured me that the slips will reach in time. Let us hope for the best,” said Dikshit.

All seven parliamentary constituencies in Delhi are going to polls on May 12. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
