There was only a trickle of candidates in the first four days, but the penultimate day of filing nominations saw a deluge at offices of returning officers at different parts of the city.

While 146 candidates had filed their nominations till Wednesday, the number of nominations on Thursday was 268, taking the total figure to 414 candidates. With Friday being a public holiday, more rush is expected on Saturday.

Hundreds of supporters of various political parties converged outside offices of returning officers on Thursday. The mood was electric with the waving of flags and vigorous sloganeering, which also led to heated arguments.

It was a slogan war at the DM's office in Shastri Nagar, with big leaders coming to file their nomination. Supporters of BJP CM candidate Harsh Vardhan and Congress senior leader AK Walia tried to outdo each other by shouting slogans loudly as they came out almost at the same time after filing nomination.

The rush at these centres also resulted in massive traffic jams on the roads outside.

Among political heavyweights from the Congress who filed their nominations on Thursday were Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit (New Delhi), social welfare minister Kiran Walia (Malviya Nagar), Delhi Assembly Speaker Yoganand Shastri (Mehrauli), health minister AK Walia (Laxmi Nagar) and power minister Haroon Yusuf (Ballimaran).

Among the BJP stalwarts, chief ministerial candidate Dr Harsh Vardhan (Krishna Nagar) and former Delhi BJP president Vijender Kumar Gupta (New Delhi) filed their nominations.
