'Fight for Delhi' is aimed at bringing the people of Delhi face to face with their electoral representatives and giving them a platform to voice their concerns and get immediate responses.

Sonia Singh, managing editor, NDTV 24x7, says, "It is a show in which we will solve the problems of the people of Delhi by forcing bureaucrats, ministers and anyone in charge to address their issues. And to ensure that they are committed, we will follow up on the promises that they've made."

Prannoy Roy, chairman, NDTV"Sheila Dikshit (Delhi chief minister) has promised to be on the show to meet voters and hear the viewers' issues. She will also appoint a person to help them out within a definite duration," adds Prannoy Roy, chairman, NDTV.

For the record, NDTV has an opt-out programme in South India called 'Southern Edition', which airs every night at 7pm in the four states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka. During the occasion of 'Durga Puja', NDTV came up with similar city specific programming in Kolkata.
