New Delhi, Nov 30 (UNI) After the heat and dust of campaigning for the Assembly polls, various players on the Delhi political scene are making use of the week's gap before the declaration of results to catch up on their sleep and attend to social and family engagements that had been put on the backburner in course of the hectic electioneering activity over the last one month.

While for Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, the lull in political activity between polling for the assembly elections and counting of votes on December 8 affords her an opportunity to catch up on her reading, for BJP chief ministerial candidate Vijay Kumar Malhotra, it is a time he plans to utilise to attend to his social and family obligations.

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, who has had a breakneck schedule over the last one month, having held hundreds of public meetings across the Capital city to campaign for candidates of the Congress party, is hoping to catch up on her reading in the coming days.

"In the last few weeks, I haven't had the time to even go through the newspapers. So in the coming days, I plan to go through the huge pile of newspapers from the past weeks,''Ms Dikshit says.

On the other hand, BJP leader and party's chief ministerial candidate Vijay Kumar Malhotra hopes to, in the coming week, take much needed time off to get some rest and attend to family engagements and daily chores like going for walks and doing puja (prayers).

For BJP leader and party nominee from the prestigious New Delhi seat Vijay Jolly too, the lull in political activity affords some time to get some much needed rest and spend some time with his family. Sources close to the BJP leader said he also plans to use the time to get an X ray done for his leg which was injured a few months ago. He also plans to spend some time with his family members, something which had not been able to do over the last over a month due to his hectic electioneering schedule.
