Political News, Nation, (New Delhi), January 20:-Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will file his nomination on Tuesday instead of Monday due to a delay caused by his roadshow.
Kejriwal was going to file his nomination Monday afternoon but due to a delay in the roadshow he was unable to do it.
The Aam Aadmi Party leader sought blessings at the Valmiki temple before starting his rally.
Scores of supporters walked in the rally holding brooms as he waved to them and flashed the victory sign amid chants of “acchhe beete panch saal, lage raho Kejriwal” (5 years went well, go on Kejriwal).
He was accompanied by his family. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and AAP leader Sanjay Singh also joined him.
The roadshow will go to Connaught Place via Panchkuian Marg into the Inner Circle and then towards the Outer Circle on to Baba Kharak Singh Marg. It will end near the Patel Chowk Metro station, it said
Kejriwal will file his nomination at SDM office in Jamnagar House.
Kejriwal on Sunday released a “guarantee card” listing 10 promises, including free bus rides for students and deployment of “mohalla marshals” for women safety, that his AAP will fulfil if it is re-elected in Delhi.
The card, “10 guarantees of Kejriwal”, also promises to continue the scheme for free electricity up to 200 units, free health facilities, to plant two crore saplings, clean Yamuna river and reduce pollution in Delhi over the next five years.
Polling for the 70-member Delhi Assembly will be held on February 8.
He will now be filing his nomination on Tuesday from Jamnagar House, party functionaries said.
