Congress is running its campaign in Delhi with the slogan: “दिल्ली की गली गली में शोर है, चौकीदार चोर है।“

Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s sister and leader of the party Priyanka Gandhi Vadra held a massive road show in Delhi on Wednesday (May 8) to support Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) president and former chief minister (CM) Sheila Dikshit in the ongoing Lok Sabha election.
In its election message, Congress is trying to leverage its past performance in Delhi when Sheila Dikshit was the CM.
“Vote for the party that electrified your homes, built your roads, gave your children clean water, and good education; but most of all made you proud of your Capital city. Your vote is your weapon against hate, lies, and corruption – don’t waste it,” Congress asks the local voters.
Referring to the corruption in Rafale deal in which PM Narendra Modi is the prime accused, Congress is running its campaign in Delhi with the slogan: “दिल्ली की गली गली में शोर है, चौकीदार चोर है।”
