After filing his nomination, the Chief Minister will also hold a roadshow, which will start at 10 AM from the historic Valmiki Mandir. The roadshow will further go to Connaught Place via Panchkuian Marg into the Inner Circle and then towards the Outer Circle and end near the Patel Chowk Metro station.
Kejriwal will file his nomination a day after releasing a ‘Guarantee Card,’ promising, among other things, quality education, 24-hour electricity, ‘mohalla marshals’ for women’s safety etc.
Neither the BJP nor the Congress has yet decided their respective candidates against Kejriwal. While the BJP has thus far released a fist list of 57 candidates, Congress’ first list has names of 54 candidates.
In the 2015 Assembly Election, the AAP won a landslide 67 seats in the 70-seat Assembly. The BJP won the remaining three seats while the Congress drew a blank.
Counting of votes and result declaration of the 2020 Assembly Election is scheduled for February 11.
