New Delhi: Sheila Dikshit, who served a short term as the Governor of Kerala post Congress's debacle in the Delhi Assembly elections, does not plan to become the party's face in case fresh elections were held in the national capital which is currently under President's Rule. "No, I don't have any such plans," said Dikshit when asked if she would play an active role in Delhi politics once again. She added, "I rule myself out of Delhi completely. I am not interested. Let the young generation take over."
The three-time CM courted a controversy recently when she said that the Bharatiya Janata Party should be given an opportunity to form government in Delhi for the good of the people.
However, she defended herself saying, "I never said BJP should form Delhi government. All I said was that if they have numbers they should form the government."
Attacking the NDA government for "forcing" UPA-appointed governors to quit, Dikshit said the new dispensation targeted the holders of the constitutional office "selectively" and "humiliated" them which does not auger well for democracy.
76-year-old Dikshit, who was appointed Kerala Governor by the UPA government in March just before the code of conduct for Lok Sabha polls came into force, said a senior bureaucrat of central government had called her and asked for her resignation.
