New Delhi, Oct 5: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said on Saturday that her government had changed the face of Delhi, and she was confident that the ruling Congress would return to power in the city for the fourth successive time.

"I am certain that the Congress will win the Delhi assembly elections for the fourth time," Dikshit told reporters.

"We have changed the face of Delhi -- 24 universities, the Metro, flyovers... We don't need to remind you of development under our government. The party manifesto will be released within 10 days," she said.

"Our work speaks for itself. When people look around, they can see the good work I have done in Delhi," she said.

Asked if she perceived any threat from the prime ministerial candidate of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Narendra Modi, she said: "He does not know Delhi. So I am totally confident of Congress' victory in the election. We are fully prepared for the fight. I am sure that the people of the city will continue to support us."

Refuting allegations of corruption from political rivals, the chief minister said there was no evidence against her government.

"The opposition always cries corruption. I want to ask, 'Where is the corruption? Give us evidence'," she said.

Assembly elections will be held in the national capital on Dec 4. Over 11.5 million people are eligible to cast their votes. Delhi has 70 assembly constituencies.
