With the Congress appearing set to make a hat-trick in the Delhi [Images] assembly elections, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday said the people of the national capital had voted for the party's development agenda.
"I congratulate the people of Delhi and many thanks to them for their support and affection for the Congress," the 71-year-old leader said in her residence as jubilant party supporters danced to drumbeats and burst firecrackers.
On BJP's poll campaign on the issue of terrorism, Dikshit said, "Nobody should play politics over terror attacks and all parties should join hands in defeating terrorism."
She said improving the lives of people would be the first priority of her government besides continuing the development of Delhi.
