After 6-hour wait, Kejriwal files nomination on last day

Agency News

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday finally managed to file his nomination papers for the upcoming Assembly polls, after waiting at the office for over six hours.

The race to file the nominations came down to the wire, with Kejriwal, who was unable to file his nomination yesterday due to his roadshow, being made to wait as others filed their papers. “Waiting to file my nomination. My token no is 45. There are many people here to file nomination papers. Am so glad so many people participating in democracy,” Kejriwal had earlier said in a tweet.

Soon, Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia alleged that BJP is not allowing Kejriwal to file nomination papers of Kejriwal.

Meanwhile, AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj alleged that around 35 candidates were sitting at the office with the chief minister without proper nomination papers or even 10 proposers. “They r insisting unless their papers r complete and they file Nomination, they won't allow CM to file Nomination,” he said.

When asked if he felt this was a delaying tactic, Bharadwaj said it could be a step taken by the same people who physically attack the CM and throw chilli powder at him.
