"My father only told me that when you have joined politics it's a tough road ahead and you really have to work hard and you have to be patient. I am just keeping these words in mind," Sharmistha, who is fighting on a Congress ticket, told media.
Speaking about her timing of joining the party, Sharmistha said, "I think this is the time people who believe in Congress can truly come and do something for the party. I could have joined the party earlier when it was in power, but this is the time when we all can do whatever little in our own way."
Greater Kailash which has a sizeable Bengali population with CR Park being a part of it, Sharmishtha feels that this factor will obviously go in her favour.
Sharmistha, just like any other candidate, is criss-crossing her constituency leaving no stone unturned to reach out to voters.
From street corner meetings to door-to-door campaigns, the Congress candidate is mainly focusing on basic issues like better lighting, streamline parking issues, sanitation and garbage segregation.

Sharmistha has been participating in events and rallies of the party for the last few months and was announced Congress candidate last week.
She will be facing BJP's Rakesh Gulia, who is also a new comer, and Aam Aadmi Party's Saurabh Bharadwaj on February 7 when Delhi goes to polls.
