Addressing an election rally in the national capital on Sunday, Kumar said, "There is one area of Delhi, which shines, that has high rises with affluent people. Second is a bigger area where there is no drinking water, road, no electricity or sewerage system.”

“There are two Delhis. One is for the rich and second is for the poor. We have come to build this Delhi of poor people. Now that we have come we will help build this city,” he added.

Taking a jibe at Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Kumar said, "Many people have an issue over people from Bihar, Purvanchal and other places coming to the city. We do not need any passport to come here. This is our capital and we can come here anytime."

He stated that if people from Bihar and Purvanchal stop working, Delhi will stop functioning.

"Many people feel that we are a liability, but we are not ...we work hard. If people from Bihar and Purvanchal stop working then who will work, who will make the flyovers and high rises. Delhi would not function if these people stop working,” he said.

Noting that migration of people from Bihar to places like Punjab and Delhi has come down, he wondered as to where would people go who have already settled here.

The Bihar Chief Minister addressed election rallies in Dwarka, Sangam Vihar and Okhla on Saturday, and held meetings in Kiradi Burari on Sunday.

Polling for the 70-member Delhi Assembly will be held on December 4.
