Boxer Vijender Singh today will file his nomination from South Delhi seat as a Congress candidate.

"I can't see any Modi wave anywhere. People have identified the real face. Youth just want employment, they say 'jumlon se peth nahi bharega," he added.
Singh has been pitted against BJP's sitting MP Ramesh Bidhuri and the Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) Raghav Chadha.
