Ruled Delhi well in my 60s,would manage UP alike in 70s: Sheila
Varanasi: Giving an apt reply to the questions raised over her age by the opponents, Uttar Pradesh (UP) Chief Ministerial candidate of Congress Sheila Dixit on Sunday said if she could responsibly play the role of Delhi CM at an elderly age of 60, she could undoubtedly do the same in UP at 75.
“Being an elderly CM, did I ever disappoint the people of the national capital? I think age is not a factor in this case. If I could justify my post of Delhi CM from my age of 60 to 75, I would definitely try my best to meet the expectations of UP people as well. Moreover, I'm sure that I will be coming back to my home state as its CM,” said former Delhi CM Dixit while interacting with media persons ahead of her party’s road show in Varanasi.
