Don't believe in exit polls: Sheila Dikshit

New Delhi: A day after opinion polls showed Congress faring poorly in Delhi, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Thursday said she neither believes in exit polls nor agrees with projections made about her losing power.

"I don't believe in exit polls and I don't believe in your projections (made by TV channels)," she said. According to the exit polls, BJP appeared to have an edge in a hung assembly in Delhi. The Times Now-C-Voter survey predicted a hung assembly, with 29 seats to BJP, 21 to Congress and 16 to AAP.

Dikshit, who led Congress to three consecutive electoral victories in Delhi, said her government ensured inclusive development in the past 15 years and hoped that the people will give the party another opportunity to serve them.

She was speaking on the sidelines of the inauguration of registered office of Bharatiya Mahila Bank here.

Talking about the bank, she said, "This is a good beginning and I hope that this will spread in Delhi."

It will be a big opportunity for women trained by 150 gender resources centres of the Delhi government, she said.

She also advocated that the bank should use mobile ATMs so that it reaches the women in the remote areas and at their doorsteps.
