Mr. Singh, who is facing BJP’s Pragya Singh Thakur, filed his papers in the afternoon, said Congress leader Jawahar Punjabi. “Diggi Raja” (as Singh is fondly called) would defeat Thakur, an accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case, and recapture the seat for the Congress after a gap of 30 years, Mr. Punjabi said.
