Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party candidate from New Delhi constituency Arvind Kejriwal finally managed to file his nomination after a six-hour-long wait.

Kejrwial left from the office of the Returning Officer a short while ago after filing his nomination.

Earlier, uncertainty loomed over whether the Delhi CM will be able to file his nomination on the last day of the process.

'Waiting to file my nomination. My token no is 45. There are many people here to file nomination papers. Am so glad so many people participating in democracy,' he tweeted.

The AAP accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of deliberately delaying Kejriwal from filing his nomination.

'Around 35 candidates are sitting at RO office without proper nomination papers, even without names of 10 proposers.

'They are insisting unless their papers are complete and file nomination, they won't allow CM Kejriwal to file nomination. The BJP is behind these people,' AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj tweeted.

Kejriwal replied to Bharadwaj's tweet, saying, 'Doesn't matter. Many of them r filing for the first time. They r bound to make mistakes. We also made mistakes the first time. We shud hand hold them. I am enjoying waiting wid them. They r all part of my family.'   -- with inputs from ANI/PTI
