SummaryBHP said that the Delhi government failed to address major challenges facing the city.

With Assembly polls in Delhi just two days away, BJP's top leaders, including L K Advani and Narendra Modi on Sunday criss-crossed the capital, asking voters to "oust" the Sheila Dikshit dispensation, accusing it of piling up "miseries" on the common man by its "misrule".

Senior party leaders Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley and Nitin Gadkari also addressed a number of rallies, seeking people's support to the party which is in the wilderness for the last 15 years after it lost power to Congress in the 1998 Assembly polls.

Making an all-out attack on Congress, Modi accused the Delhi government of "total failure" in addressing any of the major problems despite being at the helm of affairs for a decade-and-a-half and asked people not to "leave" the opportunity to defeat the ruling party.

"I am appealing to you not to leave the opportunity to oust the Congress government," he said, addressing an election meeting at Dakshinpuri in south Delhi where Rahul Gandhi had addressed a rally on November 17 that witnessed a low turnout.

Slamming the Dikshit government on a range of issues, including water scarcity, "failure" of the Bus Rapid Corridor in south Delhi and deteriorating law and order situation, Modi said BJP will ensure good governance and address major challenges facing the city.

"The BRT corridor in Delhi is a total failure while BRT corridor in Gujarat is successful. Because, here there is corruption," the Gujarat Chief Minister said.

Asking people to remember the brutal gangrape of a 23-year-old woman on December 16, last year, before casting their votes Wednesday, he said, "Delhi is the heart of Hindustan.It is now known as the rape capital of the country."

In his address, Advani asked people to vote BJP back to power in the Delhi Assembly polls as it has been in exile for more than 14 years.

Exuding confidence of BJP's victory, Advani said that the Delhi voters have a lot of wisdom and will remove the Congress government that has failed to fulfill their aspirations.

Earlier, addressing a press conference, Advani dismissed the prospects of Aam Aadmi Party in the Delhi assembly election, saying there is "no place for a third party" here.

"Though we could not have a two-party system in India, we (BJP) have ended single party dominance in the country and changed it into a bi-polar polity. But there is no place for a third party here," he said.
