Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal could not file his nomination for the Delhi Assembly Elections on Monday after he failed to reach the SDM Office in time due to his roadshow. The AAP chief was scheduled to file his nomination after the mega roadshow. However, the roadshow could not end in time, forcing Kejriwal to delay his nomination filing till Tuesday, which also happens to be the last day for filing the poll nominations.
The Delhi CM had started his rally to file his nomination for the New Delhi assembly seat at the sub-divisional magistrate in Jamnagar in the afternoon after seeking blessings at the Valmiki Temple.
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 Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and AAP leader Sanjay Singh along with his family members.
Earlier on Sunday, Kejriwal had 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 and the results will be announced on February 11.
