Abhi Dilli door hai, says CM

DNA (Delhi) - - STATE OF POLLS -

Raipur: Dr Ra­man Singh, who has been rul­ing Ch­hat­tis­garh for a record 15 years in its 18-year his­tory, feels he still has a lot to do in the state and Delhi is far away for him as of now.

Singh said he is fully sat­is­fied with his three terms as the chief min­is­ter and he has been get­ting a lot of love from the peo­ple of the state.

“As of now, I be­lieve that ‘Dilli door hai’ (Delhi is far away). It’s a plea­sure to work here in Ch­hat­tis­garh and there is a lot to work here,” Singh said in an in­ter­view.

He was re­ply­ing to ques­tions on what role does he see for him­self in the next phase of his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer and whether it would in­clude shift­ing to Delhi for a na­tional-level stint.

There have been talks in some quar­ters that Singh and a few other se­nior BJP lead­ers from var­i­ous states may be shifted to the Cen­tre, though there has been no of­fi­cial word on this from the rul­ing party or its top lead­ers.

Con­fi­dent of win­ning his fourth term as chief min­is­ter, Singh said the state polls might have some im­pact on the Lok Sabha elec­tion next year but it should not be seen as a ref­er­en­dum on the Naren­dra Modi gov­ern­ment at the Cen­tre.
