According to a report in The New Indian Express, he said that he was comfortable contesting the elections from the constituency, where he grew up.
Harshvardhan said: "I have grown in the lap of Muslims and have played gilli danda with them." He added that he would infact have an edge over others contesting the elections from here. He said that he would get collective support from all communities.
On contesting elections from Chandni Chowk, Harshvardhan said that though he was surprised with the committee's decision, he was fortunate and privileged to contest elections from a locality where he spent 15 years of his childhood.
