action from the Election Commission.
Blaming the Nitish Kumar-led government for poor
infrastructure in Bihar, Dikshit said people from state
particularly the migrant labourers contributed a lot in making
Delhi a world-class city.
"I would not have been able to make Delhi what it is
today without contribution of people from Bihar. They have
contributed," she said, adding, "But why cannot the same kind
of development take place in Bihar."
