She thanked the party high command and said it is a big responsibility.

She also referred herself as “a bahu (daughter-in-law) of Uttar Pradesh”, and said those who claim she is an outsider to the state are off the mark.

While announcing her name, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that it should not be assumed that Dikshit will stand for election in Uttar Pradesh. He said it was not necessary to content elections to become the Chief Minister.

Meanwhile, Dixit will be questioned in the water tanker scam on August 26.
