New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal will take oath as the Chief Minister of Delhi on 16th February, at Ramlila Maidan. Kejriwal had also taken oath at the Ramlila Maidan in 2015, which is where the anti-corruption movement spearheaded by Anna Hazare first started.
Kejriwal addressed people at the party’s headquarters in Delhi yesterday after results showed a sweep for the party. A new kind of politics has emerged from the Delhi Assembly polls with people rewarding the party which built schools, hospitals and provided cheap electricity round-the-clock, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Tuesday.
AAP supporters celebrate outside Kejriwal’s residence: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supporters on Wednesday gathered outside the residence of AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal and danced to the beats of drums, a day after AAP secured a massive victory in Delhi Assembly polls. Supporters were playing the drums and trumpets.
Kejriwal met Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal at the Raj Niwas on Wednesday, a day after he scripted a spectacular victory sweeping the Delhi polls. The meeting lasted for around 15 minutes. Sources said the two discussed the oath-taking ceremony.
As per procedure, Kejriwal is also likely to tender his resignation to pave the way for his fresh swearing-in as the chief minister. Kejriwal will also hold meeting with the newly elected Aam Aadmi Party MLAs. The legislators will then elect him as the leader of the legislative party, following which he will stake claim to form the government.
