Leader of opposition in state assembly Vijay Kumar Malhotra also set similar effigies on fire at Dussehra Ground in Chirag Dilli.

Malhotra appealed to the thousands of party workers present there that they should visit every household and request the people to dislodge Congress government because it had lost its capacity to rule.

Burning the effigies in Patel Nagar, senior BJP leader Vani Tripathi said, “Time has come for the people to take revenge from the Congress government for all the atrocities committed by it.”

“People should replace Dikshit government with BJP which is committed to providing a respected and honourable living to all the city residents,” Tripathi added. The district president Rajesh Bhatia was also present on the occasion.
