New Delhi, Nov 30 (UNI) Expressing happiness over more than 60 per cent voter turnout in the Delhi assembly elections yesterday, BJP leader and party's nominee from the New Delhi assembly segment Vijay Jolly today said high voter turnout was a reflection of the people's anger towards the Sheila Dikshit Government in Delhi.
Dismissing claims by the Congress that a high turnout was a reflection of the huge mandate by the people of Delhi towards the developmental initiatives by the Sheila Dikshit Government over the last ten years, Mr Jolly said, ''History shows that whenever people have turned out to vote in large numbers in an elections, it has been to reflect their anger towards the establishment. In this sense, the over 60 per cent voter turnout reflects the anger of the people towards the Delhi Government.'' People of Delhi are angry over the poor law and order situation in Delhi which they feel is due to the Delhi Government' s dilly dallying on issues like Afzal hanging,'' he said.
The high voter turnout in the assembly elections this year is a vast improvement over the voting percentage of 53 per cent during the 2003 Assembly polls.
Infact, the New Delhi assembly segment from where Mr Jolly is contesting against Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit witnessed a high voting percentage of 56.7 per cent in yesterday's polling.
