    Eggs pelted at Sheila Dikshit at a function - Politics - Politics News - ibnlive
    New Delhi: A day after she was heckled and shown black flags, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit was on Saturday hit by eggs thrown at her by irate protestors, Congress party sources said. Dikshit had gone to attend a function at New Mustafabad in east Delhi at about 6.30 pm when the incident occurred.

    As she started to address the rally, the audience, made up largely by women, started to raise slogans of "Sheila Dikshit, Hai Hai" ("Fie on Sheila Dikshit"). The women also threw eggs at the chief minister, some of which found their mark.

    Dikshit had been on Friday heckled and shown black flags by a crowd, angry over inflated electricity bills.

    Good show.

    Though I will say that she has been a good CM compared to many, yet her condescension and superciliousness rankles people.

    Typical Delhi chatterati!

    She must be better than the opposition surely if she has won 3 consecutive terms as CM. In fact on Twitter there is some chatter of her being elevated to central govt role.

    BJP has no leader in Delhi and she wins by default because of TINA factor. I hope she is elevated, we need a CM who drinks and lectures less.

    The increase in electricity rates is going to pinch the government very hard. Many people did not realise but the increase in rates coupled with the removal of the slab system has ensured that the electricity bills are up by almost 50% or more.

    The anger against the CM is quite high and it remains for the BJP to tap it. As Singh has pointed out the TINA factor has helped the Congress and might be their saviour once again.
