New Delhi, January 21
Delhi Chief Miniser Arvind Kejriwal filed his nomination papers for Delhi Assembly elections after waiting for over six hours, Aam Aadmi Party said.
Ahead of filing his nomination for the Delhi Assembly election, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the journey for the next five years starts now and his aim is to beat corruption and take Delhi forward.
He also tweeted that he was standing in a queue to file his nomination.
“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,” he tweeted.
AAP national convener Kejriwal was to file his nomination on Monday after a roadshow but failed to do so due to delay in the event.
“The journey for the next five years starts from here. Like the good work that has happened in Delhi, I hope in the next five years also there will be good work,” Kejriwal said.

He said while the aim of opposition parties is to defeat him in the upcoming polls, his aim is to beat corruption and take Delhi forward.
“BJP, Congress and many other parties have come together...LJP, JJP, JD(U) and RJD. For the time there is such a coalition in Delhi. All these parties only have one aim, ‘defeat Kejriwal’. And I have only one aim, how to end corruption and take Delhi forward,” he said.
They are saying ‘defeat Kejriwal’ and I am saying make schools better, hospitals better. Their only aim is to defeat Kejriwal,” the AAP chief said. PTI
