NEW DELHI: 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 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 campaign for which had come to an end yesterday. The campaign was marked by bitter political attacks and allegations and counter allegations.  

Kejriwal is contesting from the prestigious New Delhi constituency while Bedi has been fielded from Krishna Nagar, considered a stronghold of the BJP.   

A total of 673 candidates are in the fray for the 70-member Delhi Assembly. The results will be declared on February 10.

On the other hand, Congress's chief ministerial nominee Ajay Maken preferred to focus on work during the day.         

Maken attended a meeting of senior Congress leaders presided by party vice president Rahul Gandhi to discuss issues related to organisational election that is aimed at making the party fighting fit after a series of poll debacles, including in the Lok Sabha.   

Later, he met the poll agents to ensure that preparations are smooth for tomorrow's polling.      

Maken is contesting from Sadar Bazaar constituency.
