The star campaigners from the three major parties in the fray in Delhi - the Congress, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), will leave no stone unturned to woo the voters. The campaigning for Delhi Assembly polls will end at 5.30 pm on Monday.

BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj and Nitin Gadkari will be addressing rallies through the day. Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit will also be addressing seven rallies in the national capital in a last bid to woo the voters.


On Sunday, Delhi witnessed over 25 rallies and scores of road shows with top leaders of major parties aggressively attempting to reach out to voters by making an array of promises and spelling out their vision for the city.

BJP's high-voltage campaign was led by party stalwart Lal Krishna Advani and its Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

Dismissing the Aam Aadmi Party’s prospects in the Delhi assembly polls, Advani on Sunday said that there is no place for a third party in the elections. He also criticized the Congress-led UPA Government for policy paralysis and economic mismanagement in the country.

Modi on his part criticized the Sheila Dikshit government, and accused the Congress of giving Delhi the image of ‘rape capital’ due to its failure to address the issue of women security and other major challenges.

"There is not a single country in the world which does not take care of its capital. Every country is recognized by its capital, and today Delhi has come to be known as the rape capital. Delhi, which is heart of the country, has earned such a bad name as Congress has failed to provide safety and security to our daughters," Modi said, while addressing a rally at Dakshinpuri area in South Delhi on Sunday.



Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal also campaigned hard in support of their party candidates.

Leaders of Akali Dal (Badal) and various smaller parties also campaigned across the city, which witnessed traffic snarls in various areas despite it being a Sunday.

The capital votes on December 4 and the counting will take place on December 8.
