AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal to file his nomination for Delhi elections today

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal will file his nomination papers from New Delhi constituency for Delhi Assembly Elections on Tuesday.

The BJP on Monday fielded a young party member Nupur Sharma to take on Kejriwal in New Delhi seat in Delhi Assembly polls.

The Congress has former Delhi minister Kiran Walia against the AAP leader from the prestigious constituency.

With BJP announcing Kiran Bedi as its CM candidate, it would be interesting to see as to how the two ex-Team Anna members take on each other during campaigning.

The BJP's decision on naming Bedi, 65, as chief ministerial candidate came after the party leadership felt that they needed a credible local face to take on Kejriwal, who has strong anti-corruption credentials.

To assess the mood of the people of Delhi, Zee News commissioned a survey through TALEEM Research Foundation.

As per the survey, three out of 10 or 31.7 percent voters unanimously indicated their choice for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal for the CM post. On the other hand, as far as BJP is concerned, the most frequently mentioned name is that of Dr Harsh Vardhan (11.3 percent), Kiran Bedi (5.0 percent), Narendra Modi (4.8 percent) followed by a whole host of names who have been chosen by less than 2.0 percent voters namely Smriti Irani, Satish Upadhyay, Manoj Kumar, Vijay Goyel, Sushma Swaraj and other host of name have been mentioned.

Voting for Delhi Assembly Elections 2015 would be held in a single phase on February 7 with the counting of votes scheduled for February 10. Delhi has 70 Assembly seats.

In 2013 Assembly elections BJP had won 31 seats, AAP 28 and Congress 8.

Delhi has been under President’s Rule since February after the AAP government quit after ruling for 49 days last year.

The total electorate of Delhi is 1.3 crore and the total number of polling stations are 11763.
