“I am ready for another fight,” Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said on Sunday,as she prepares to lead Congress for an unprecedented fourth term after Assembly elections in November.

The 75-year-old Congress leader,who has had a rather difficult time in recent months in the wake of the December 16 gangrape incident and other law and order issues,said she has no intention of shying away from leadership.

“When we go in for elections in November-December,I think we will go with confidence. We are not shaky,not scared,” she said.

Dikshit,who led Congress to three straight wins in Delhi,beginning 1998,and has been at the helm of affairs for nearly 15 years,said she will fight the Assembly polls on the basis of her record and achievements in making Delhi a better city.

“Our record has been good. Something which can be seen and felt,motivates voters,” she said.

When asked whether she will lead the party in the elections,she replied: “I don’t intend to run away. I am never fatigued because there is always something new to do here,” she said.

Asked about Opposition BJP,Dikshit said the party has not been able to pose a challenge.

She was dismissive about Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). She said AAP is not clear about what it wants.
