"It is very disappointing, we should have won", she said at the time. When I became MP, she was the Parliamentary Affairs Minister. "Only last month I had met her for almost an hour when she came with her party's delegation to submit a memorandum on several issues, at the end of the meeting I wished her good health, not knowing that this would be my last meeting with her". Usually, guests would be called over for lunch and at times she would personally serve them. But her sense of loyalty towards the party brought her back in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh politics where her career continued to take a nosedive.

Akshay praised Dikshit for her contribution to the national Capital.

She was sure the Congress was gradually regaining its goodwill and support from the people and that was the reason for her stiff and successful resistance to the proposal for an alliance with AAP in the just-concluded general elections.

Yet, by the next Assembly elections in 2003, Delhi's change-over to CNG was a success story. Blessed with a warm and affable personality, she made a noteworthy contribution to Delhi's development. "My condolences to her family & the citizens of Delhi, whom she served selflessly as a 3 term CM, in this time of great grief". She was also a close associate of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi and a minister in his cabinet. Mani Shankar Aiyar had created a flutter of sort describing her as a "gangster's moll" in his news magazine column.

After she lost the elections in 2013, her equation with the high command began to change.

Her largely successful legacy was, however, marred by the CWG scam as the BJP accused her of large- scale corruption in several development contracts approved to meet the 2010 Commonwealth Games deadline.

Dikshit's super political run in Delhi ended in 2013 at the hands of AAP founder Arvind Kejriwal who defeated her in the Assembly polls.

Krishi Jagran would like to express its heartfelt condolence to the family.

Their differences came out into the public domain with Chacko writing letters to Dikshit questioning her working style.

"I had met her recently, it is a big shock". The party said as chief minister, she transformed the face of Delhi in her 15-year tenure.

In 2017, the Congress even projected her as its chief ministerial candidate in UP but she was spared the blushes as the party gave up the idea midway and tied up with Akhilesh Yadav's Samajwadi Party. Post 2014 Delhi Assembly defeat, she was made governor of Kerala and subsequently, the politician wanted to lead a life of retirement.

Sheila Dikshit began her political carrier with the Congress party and got elected to the Lok Sabha from Uttar Pradesh Kannauj constituency from 1984- 1989.
