Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal will file his nomination on Monday for the New Delhi assembly seat.

“I will file my nomination tomorrow. I will feel very good if you come to bless me,” Kejriwal had said in a tweet.

Before filing his nomination, Kejriwal will hold a roadshow after seeking the blessings of Bhagwan Valmiki at the historic Valmiki Mandir, sources said.

Kejriwal on Sunday released a ‘guarantee card’ listing 10 promises, including 24 hours drinking water supply to every household, free public travel for students. The card has those points the party promised to do in the next five years if elected again.

The “guarantee card” also promises to continue the scheme for free electricity up to 200 units and deployment of “mohalla marshals” for women’s safety in Delhi over the next five years.

The Aam Aadmi Party had won 67 of 70 seats in 2015 Delhi assembly elections. The party has already named candidates for all 70 seats.

Polling for the 70-member Delhi Assembly will be held on February 8 and the counting of votes is scheduled on February 11.
