NEW DELHI: Congress leader Pawan Khera on Monday said Delhi reflects the state of the rest of the nation, and if one notices the condition of the poor living in its JJ clusters, one can gauge what must be their condition in the other parts of the country.

During a press conference at the Delhi Congress office here, Khera alleged that ever since the BJP government came into power, it seems it is taking a revenge from Delhi.

He said the reason behind it is that from 1998 till today, the national capital has not given another chance to the BJP.

"Being the capital of the country, Delhi's issues are national issues. Delhi is a reflection of what is happening in the country," Khera said.

"Today, if the condition of daily wagers and our brothers and sisters living in JJ clusters is poor in Delhi, then you must know that this is a reflection of the entire country. You can get an idea of what has been happening in the country for the last 10 years by looking at Delhi," he added.

He said the word 'Nyay' used by party leader Rahul Gandhi is not mere word but "the essence of our Constitution and the ideology of the Congress Party."

Polling in the national capital will take place on May 25.

The Congress and Aam Aadmi Party are fighting in alliance in the national capital.
