People have right to vote for whichever party: Sheila Dikshit on Kejriwal’s Muslim vote claim


New Delhi, May 18: Reacting to Delhi CM's reported remark that 'Muslim votes shifted to Congress in Delhi at last moment', Congress leader Sheila Dikshit said everyone has the right to vote for whichever party he/she wants to.

The former chief minister was quoted by ANI as saying, "Don't know what is he trying to say. Everyone has a right to vote whichever party he/she wants to vote. People of Delhi did not understand nor liked his governance model."

In an interview to the Indian Express AAP national convener, when asked how many seats his party would get in Delhi, said, "Until 48 hours before polling, it seemed like all seven seats will come to AAP. But at the last moment, the complete Muslim vote got shifted to Congress. We are still trying to figure out what actually happened."

Polling for seven Lok Sabha constituencies in the national capital was held on May 12 with a voter turnout of 60 per cent.
