New Delhi, Apr 8: On the penultimate of day of campaigning for seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi, various political parties today held a series of rallies across the city and went door-to-door seeking to woo voters.

In West Delhi, Kejriwal, traveling in an open jeep, along with party nominee Jarnail Singh, sought people's support to bring a change in the political system. Almost all senior Delhi BJP leaders also addressed rallies across the city, urging people to vote for the party and oust the "corrupt" UPA.

Vardhan slammed the Congress and AAP for making personal attacks


"The Modi wave now sweeping the country has its roots in the national resolve to revive the era of progress and positivity which abruptly ended when the Communist-backed UPA came to power in 2004. After that it has been only downhill.

The people of India will not blunder again," said Delhi BJP Chief Harsh Vardhan, who is contesting from Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha constituency. Regretting the depths to which the political discourse has fallen in the run up to the elections 2014, Vardhan accused the Congress and AAP for lowering India's prestige by making slanderous personal attacks. Delhi Congress president Arvinder Singh Lovely expressed confidence of a "better show" in the election compared to its performance in Assembly polls.

"After Rahul Gandhi's historic rally yesterday at Dakshinpuri, the BJP has become afraid, and has cancelled the scheduled rally of Narendra Modi at the Ramlila Maidan today," he said.
