Bubble around AAP has burst: Dikshit
New Delhi, Nov 22: Accusing Aam Admi Party of "hurting" the sentiments of people, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today said the "bubble around it has ruptured", in the wake of a sting operation purportedly showing its senior leaders "raising funds through illegal means".

"When AAP was created, they touched the emotions and feelings of people, and their talk was something reflective of what people were feeling. But, as it appears now, that was really a self certification. And today their face has totally changed," Dikshit said.

Admitting that the party had been able to influence people, she said the bubble around it has now ruptured.

"They influenced people in such a way that people started believing that they will really change ways, thoughts and means of the system, but they are exposed now. So now time will see what happens next," the Chief Minister said at an interaction at the Indian Women Press Corps here.

She rejected AAP as a serious contender in the electoral battle and said BJP is their main opponent in the polls.

"BJP is an established party and so that's our main contender. Aam Admi Party....well the less said about it is better," she said.

On BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, she said he will not have any impact on people of the city. "People of Delhi very well know that their vote for this election is for forming the local government," she said.

When asked whether she will move to the Centre if Congress does not come to power in Delhi, Dikshit said, "If we win, the MLA's will decide who they want as the leader and then the high command will take a call on it."

"However, if we don't win, of which chances are very less, I will go along with the system till the Parliament elections take place. After that whatever I will be given I will do that," she said.

On anti-incumbency, she smilingly said, "Well, I see a pro-incumbency" adding every contest is tough and she is going to contest with confidence."
