New Delhi: Ajay Maken, chief of the Congress campaign committee, filed his nomination for the upcoming Delhi Assembly polls from Delhi Sadar Bazaar on Wednesday.

Today is the last day for filing nominations for the Delhi polls.

Prior to filing nomination, Maken told ANI, “Both of them ( AAP and BJP) are with each other. Many people who were with Anna Hazare earlier have joined the BJP now. So, it will not be surprising if in future the Aam Aadmi Party also merges with the Bharatiya Janata Party .”

"The merger of both parties is surely going to take place. Be it now, after six months or later. The people should consider this thing before casting their vote," he added.

"They all started with the name of corruption, but now no one is talking about that. Kiran Bedihas no experience of administration or policy making," he added.

50-year-old Maken, who has been elected consecutively for three terms since 1993, lost Lok Sabha polls last year.

Apart from Maken, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief ministerial candidate Arvind Kejriwal and Bharatiya Janata Party CM candidate Kiran Bedi will also file their nominations today.

Kejriwal and Bedi filed their nominations from New Delhi constituency and Krishna Nagar constituency of East Delhi respectively.

The polls on 70-member Delhi Assembly will be held in single-phase on February 7 and counting of votes will take place on February 10.
