New Delhi, Oct 27 (IANS) After ruling Delhi for 15 long years, the Congress is confident of retaining power in assembly elections scheduled Dec 4, party vice president Rahul Gandhi said Sunday.
"I have full confidence that the Congress will win again in Delhi," Gandhi told an election rally here.
He counted the achievements of the Congress government, which has ruled Delhi since 1998, citing as examples the rapid expansion of Delhi Metro, regularization of unauthorized colonies and the food security bill.
He said Delhi Metro's model was being adopted even by foreign countries like Indonesia and that the UPA government had given a "shining and world-class" airport to Delhiites.
"No one can say 'there's been no development in Delhi', not even the opposition," he added.
Gandhi said the opposition was opposed to people's participation in decision making process.
"I want the voices of youth and women to reach state assemblies and parliament but the opposition is opposed to it. They want the bureaucracy to run this country."
He rejected claims that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA had helped build infrastructure in the capital. "We built roads three times more than NDA."
