Delhi Assembly elections: Arvind Kejriwal casts vote with family

Voting for the 70 Assembly constituencies in Delhi is under way with people queuing up outside polling booths since early Saturday morning.

Over 1.47 crore people are eligible to exercise their franchise.

Kejriwal, who is contesting the polls from the New Delhi seat, was accompanied by his family. After voting he took to his twitter account and tweeted, “Voted along with my family, including my first-time voter son. Urge all young voters to come out to vote. Your participation strengthens democracy.”

Delhi will witness a triangular contest between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress.

The AAP, under the leadership of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, is seeking to retain the power in the National Capital.
