GUWAHATI, April 5 � Accusing rival political parties in Assam of having a divisive agenda, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit claimed that only the Congress would be able to work for peace and inclusive growth. Addressing a press conference at Rajiv Bhawan here, the senior Congress leader said that her party would take action against anyone found guilty in corruption cases.
�People in Assam can understand�and will act responsibly,� she said referring to the Assembly elections, the second phase of which will be held on April 11. She mentioned that the Congress would emerge victorious as people were aware of the development that has taken place in the State under the leadership of Tarun Gogoi. �Yes! We are confident of a win,� she remarked.
Asked to comment on corruption charges against the Gogoi-led Government, she said that the Chief Minister himself had spoken about action against anyone involved in graft. Dikshit asserted that the Congress stood by its commitment to transparency, unlike some other parties, which were more intent on levelling allegations.
According to her the Congress would do well in the state, and her assessment of the first phase of elections was �very good�. She was hopeful of winning a good number of seats in the second phase where elections will be held in sixty-four constituencies.
Asked for her opinion on the perennial problems of Guwahati, and the Gogoi-led Government�s failure to redress those, she admitted that there were works which were yet to be completed. But given the chance, a Congress government will be able to deliver on its promise of better infrastructure and amenities, she claimed.
Dikshit attended three campaign rallies at Fancy Bazar, Khanapara and Maligaon after her arrival in the city this morning and flew back to New Delhi in the evening.
