On the eve of the high-profile Delhi Assembly polls — two Chief Ministerial aspirants — AAP’s Arvind Kejriwal and BJP’s Kiran Bedi — today sought divine blessings for the electoral battle.

Bedi offered prayers at a gurudwara in her Krishna Nagar constituency and was seen rolling out ‘rotis’ for the langar (community kitchen).

“I am not doing it for the first time. I used to visit gurudwaras in Amritsar when I was a child. I used to go to church in my school. I believe in all religions. I learnt the ‘sarva dharma’ during my childhood. It’s all upto God now,” Bedi told reporters.

Unwinding after a hectic campaign spree, Kejriwal did yoga at his residence early in the morning before going to a salon for a hair cut.

He later visited Gurudwara Rakabganj and Birla Temple in his New Delhi constituency.

“Will go to all temples and gurudwaras in my constituency today. I pray to God that let truth triumph and let the common man win,” Kejriwal said.

AAP and BJP appeared to be the main contenders in tomorrow’s polls, campaigning for which had come to an end yesterday. The campaign was marked by bitter political attacks and allegations and counter allegations.
