New Delhi [India]: Congress leader Sheila Dikshit on Sunday condemned the attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal that took place on Saturday.
Speaking at a press conference here, Dikshit said, “We condemn the attack on Arvind Kejriwal. Such attacks should not happen no matter who is the leader.”
On Saturday, Kejriwal was slapped by an unidentified man in Moti Nagar in west Delhi while he was campaigning for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
Further, when asked to predict Congress’ performance in the ensuing polls, Dikshit said, “I don’t do guesswork. But all our candidates are doing well, they are working hard and the response of the people is very good.”
Earlier in the day, the former Delhi chief minister conducted a door-to-door campaign in Seelampur area of the national capital.
Talking to ANI, Dikshit said, “The door to door campaign helps in meeting people face to face and listen to their concerns.”
“It is also a learning experience for me and I will meet people again after the Lok Sabha Polls are over in Delhi,” she added.
Congress has fielded Dikshit to take on sitting BJP MP Manoj Tiwari from North East Delhi parliamentary seat.
All seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi will vote in a single phase on May 12. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.
