New Delhi: In an apparent dig at BJP`s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Wednesday asked the people to keep out the forces involved in "dividing" the country and "spreading hatred".
"The narrow ideology is not in the interest of the society as well as the country. People must keep away the forces involved in dividing the country and spreading hatred," she said.
The Chief Minister was speaking after inaugurating a newly-built school complex at Jahangirpuri area in North Delhi.
Listing achievements of her government, she said the city witnessed development in true sense in the last 15 years.
"The development work carried out by my government is very much visible. People know about our achievements," she said.
On onion prices going up again, she said unprecedented rains and floods have affected the production of vegetables in the country, which is resulting in rise in prices of the vegetable in the retail market.
She expressed the hope that the prices will be stabilise in the next few days. Union Minister Kapil Sibal, who was also present on the occasion, said his ministry would connect all the rooms in the Sarvodaya Vidyalaya with internet and provide Akash Tablet to girl students.
