Delhi Assembly Elections 2020 | Delayed by roadshow, Arvind Kejriwal to file his nomination tomorrow
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: After missing the deadline to file nomination because of his massive roadshow, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal said that he will file his nomination on Tuesday.
The Delhi Chief Minister was going to file his nomination Monday afternoon but due to a delay in the roadshow he was unable to do it. He will now be filing his nomination on Tuesday from Jamnagar House, party functionaries said.
“I was supposed to file my nomination at 3 pm today but the office closes at 3 pm. I was told I'll have to file nomination but I said how can I leave them (people at road show) and go? I'll go to file nomination tomorrow,” said Kejriwal.
Kejriwal further thanked people for their support during the rally and urged them to vote for the AAP in the elections.
“Just 20 days are left for elections now, we will go to every house and urge them to vote for AAP,” he said.
The Delhi Chief Minister on Monday held a roadshow on Monday ahead of the assembly elections in Delhi.
“We fought elections in 2013 for the first time. Then in 2015, now five years have completed. I feel satisfaction that we have worked a lot in these five years. I think Delhiites will give us another chance to work for another five years,” Kejriwal said.
The ruling AAP has declared names of all 70 candidates for Delhi assembly polls with Chief Minister Kejriwal to contest from New Delhi, a seat he has won twice in the past.
AAP is the first among three major contenders in Delhi to declare all 70 candidates for the assembly polls which will be held on February 8. The party had won a landslide victory in the last polls winning 67 of 70 seats.
