In a video message, the sitting MLA from Okhla said he will also file his nominations quietly as two major protests - one at Shaheen Bagh and another at Jamia Milia Islamia - are taking place in his constituency.

"We will distribute voting slips and appeal to people to cast their votes in favour of their favourite candidate," he added.
