Kejriwal to file nomination in Varanasi Wednesday

Varanasi, April 22: AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal will file his nomination for the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat Wednesday, party leader Manish Sisodia said.

Kejriwal’s nomination will come a day before BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi – who the former Delhi chief minister has challenged in the Hindu holy city – files his papers.

“He will file his nomination on Wednesday. He will go to DM’s office in an open jeep. His supporters will go along,” Sisodia said here.

Varanasi will go to polls May 12 in the last phase of the Lok Sabha polls 2014.

Besides Modi, the others in the race are Congress’s Ajay Rai and Samajwadi Party candidate Kailash Prasad Chaurasia.
