New Delhi, Oct 26 (IANS) With Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi all set to address Delhi residents Sunday, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said that she was confident that the rally would be a success.

"We are expecting a huge crowd. There will be thousands and thousands of people and it is possible that the figure reaches lakhs also," she said.

"We are confident that it (rally) will be a success," she added.

According to Dikshit, necessary arrangements are in place anticipating the huge turnout at the Ramlila Maidan in west Delhi's Mongolpuri.

This would be the Gandhi scion's first rally in the capital ahead of the Dec 4 assembly elections.

Meanwhile, Delhi Public Works Department Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan said that the rally would be "simple as per party orders".
