This comes just a day before Delhi goes to poll on Sunday. Dikshit is contesting from North East Delhi. Polling for all seven seats in the national capital will commence tomorrow morning.

Dikshit is contesting from North East Delhi.

Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday slammed AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal for allegedly spreading rumors about her health. In a tweet, the Congress leader said: “Arvind Kejriwal, why are you spreading rumors about my health? If you don’t have any work, come over for a meal at my place. You will see me, have meal and also learn to contest elections without spreading rumors.”

Delhi CM Kejriwal responded to her saying he never spoke about her health. “My family has taught me to respect elders. May god give you good health and long life. When you were going abroad for treatment, I had come to your home to know about your health. Tell me when should I come for a meal?” the AAP chief said.

PTI reports that Dikshit posted the tweet after learning that AAP volunteers are spreading rumours in northeast Delhi that she is unable to actively take part in campaigning because of her health.

This comes just a day before Delhi goes to poll on Sunday. Tree-time Delhi chief minister, Dikshit is contesting the polls from North East Delhi seat. Dikshit is contesting against BJP sitting MP Manoj Tiwari and AAP’s Dilip Pandey.

Polling for all seven seats in the national capital will commence tomorrow morning. In 2014, the BJP had won all seven seats with over 46 pe rent vote share. The AAP came second and the Congress was pushed to third in terms of vote share.
