"The big promises are not enough to win the heart of voters. The BJP is making unbelievable promises. The party says it will bring down rates of vegetables. Do they not know that prices of these seasonal vegetables are already going down?" she said.
Earlier on Tuesday, the BJP in its manifesto promised reduction in prices of onions and tomatoes within thirty days of coming to power. The Chief Minister also warned people against misleading campaign of AAP, saying "they are selling unreal dreams to befool people."
Addressing a public meeting at Shakur Basti, Dikshit also cautioned them against being misled by false claims. "Throughout Delhi, BJP has put hoardings claiming the prices of onions and tomatoes to be Rs 100 and Rs 80. Do not trust them because the prices of these vegetables have already gone down to Rs 35-40," she said.
"Development is visible here and it's not only the infrastructural development that we talk about. Citizens in Delhi feel empowered," said Dikshit.
The Chief Minister also promised to boost employment opportunities by giving computer teaching institutions the status of industries.

"There is not enough land for creation of industries. Therefore, we will ensure that computer-based education is given the status of an industry to generate employment," said Dikshit.

She also took a pot shot at BJP's chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan for saying that 'Delhi is in ICU'. "The BJP says it will make Delhi healthier if it comes to power, one should ask BJP that why it was not done before, why it will be done only after the elections?," she asked.

The BJP was in power in Delhi from 1993 to 1998. "I am confident that Congress will register a huge victory in Assembly polls as people of Delhi are aware of the work we have done in past 15 years.

Describing Delhi as the most prosperous city in the country, she highlighted the economic growth and achievements of her government in diverse sectors.

"Why do the youth come to Delhi? Back in the year 1998, the pass percentage of students was limited to 35-40 percent in class X exams, but today over 90 percent students pass every year," she said.

In a bid to woo the women electorate for the upcoming Assembly polls scheduled for December 4, Dikshit promised to further upgrade 'Ladli' scheme to 'Kabil Ladli' wherein deserving girls will be given more than one lakh rupees for higher education.

Promising extension of the Delhi metro, she said that her government will ensure inclusive development. "Our government has regularized most unauthorized colonies. No one has done this in 40 years. We acknowledge that there are people living in slums here but in our slum redevelopment programme, no jhuggis will be removed, no livelihoods will be destroyed. Colonies will be developed in the same areas.

"Delhi has witnessed major transformation. The Congress has been working day and night for last 15 years for the welfare of the public and to bring this change," she said.

Dikshit on Tuesday addressed a number of election meetings at Shalimar Bagh, Rohini and Hari Nagar.
