“Congress says 'anubhav hai, raftar hai'. I tell you it is right, because they have an experience of scams ('anubhav hai ghotalon ka') and have seen crime growing apace ('raftar hai aparadhon ki')," Swaraj said on Thursday. (JPN/Agencies)
"The state government and the Centre both have experience of so many scams, the big CWG scam, huge 2G spectrum scam and the mammoth coal scam. Also, crime has risen at such speed in the city. After the December 16 gangrape, crimes against women still continue unchecked," she alleged.
Led by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, the Congress is wooing the masses this time with their slogan "Anubhav hai, rafter hai, Congress phir iss bar hai (There is experience, there is pace; It is going to be Congress again)".
Swaraj, who is the Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, also criticized the Delhi Chief Minister for ‘asking women to stay indoors’ after dark.
"These women who work at call centers at night, they don't go there out of choice but to earn a living. It would have been better had she (Dikshit) provided them with vehicles and security guards instead of asking them to stay indoors,” she said.
The BJP leader had a hectic schedule for the day as she attended rallies in multiple constituencies, Model Town, Sadar Bazar, Chandni Chowk, Najafgarh and Matia Mahal.
Addressing a gathering of traders at Kamla Nagar market in Model Town, Swaraj asked for their votes as a ‘bohni for BJP’.
"In your trade parlance you call your first sale 'bohni'. So, be our first voters and do the 'bohni' for us," she said.
Meanwhile, at a rally last night at Chirag Delhi in the Greater Kailash constituency, senior BJP leader VK Malhotra raised questions over the Congress Party’s claims of Delhi being a "world-class" city.
"Delhi has become a capital of rapes and the dirty Yamuna. Yet, Congress calls it one of the best capital cities," he told the gathering.
Referring to a speech by Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi, Malhotra remarked that, "He (Rahul) says Delhi is one of the best cities in the world. However, the foreigners who come here see people living beside railway platforms and see men, women and children defecating in the open. That is an image of the national capital that they carry back."
“Congress says 'anubhav hai, raftar hai'. I tell you it is right, because they have an experience of scams ('anubhav hai ghotalon ka') and have seen crime growing apace ('raftar hai aparadhon ki')," Swaraj said on Thursday.
