New Delhi, Mar 21: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit expresses her helplessness as she complains on Saturday, Mar 20, that she is more of a 'PR (public relations) Chief Minister' having no control over police, civic agencies and land authority in the national capital.

"I have the nomenclature of being a chief minister but I think I am more of a PR chief minister than a chief minister," Dikshit said while speaking at the Asia Corporate Conference in Delhi.

The Chief Minister made the statement in response to query on the problems faced by her as the CM of Delhi.

"The greatest problem is the multiplicity of authority. The federal government being in Delhi has its own advantages and very big disadvantages, as all the ministries want to have a say in Delhi," she said.

"I have to run from one ministry of government of India to other. I don't have land with me; I need to ask for it; I need to buy it. I don't have police with me, whenever people say that Delhi is not safe they blame me, they don't know that I don't have the police under me," she said.

Dikshit is in her third consecutive term as the CM of Delhi.
