New Delhi: AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi, BJP’s chief ministerial candidate in Delhi, filed their nomination from New Delhi assembly constituency for the Feb 7 polls.
Bedi reached the sub-divisional magistrate’s (SDM) office around noon. She was accompanied by senior leaders Harsh Vardhan, Vijay Goel, Maheish Girri and Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay.
Before filing her nomination, Bedi participated in a roadshow from the Lala Lajpat Rai chowk which culminated at the SDM’s office.
“I hope people will accept me and vote for the BJP,” Bedi told reporters before filing her nominations.
Aravind Kejriwal, the former Delhi chief minister, met with protests by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers as he reached the district magistrate office on Shahjahan Road at 11.20 a.m.
The BJP workers standing outside the district magistrate office shouted anti-Kejriwal and pro-Narendra Modi slogans. Then, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers also started raising anti-Modi slogans.
It took Kejriwal nearly an hour to complete the procedure.
‘It is people who have to decide who they need to vote for…In fact, they have decided that they have to vote for the AAP in full majority,’ Kejriwal said after filing his nomination papers.
‘My biggest challenges are corruption and price rise. I accept that people were angry because of our resignation earlier, but now their anger is over and they have full faith in us,’ he added.
