Arvind Kejriwal, who returned to power in Delhi with a landslide election victory, will take oath as the Chief Minister of Delhi for the third consecutive term on Sunday. The oath-taking ceremony will take place at Ramlila Maidan. In a huge departure from the norm, no Chief Minister or political leaders from other states will be part of AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal’s oath ceremony, said a senior party leader on Thursday.
We will be holding the oath-taking ceremony on Sunday at 10 am… Everyone in Delhi is invited to come and bless their son, their brother, Arvind Kejriwal and take an oath for a better Delhi,” top AAP leader Manish Sisodia said during a press conference along with Kejriwal on Wednesday.
Kejriwal staked claim to form govt
Kejriwal on Wednesday also met Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal at his residence in a meeting that lasted for around 15 minutes. Later in the day, he wrote to Lieutenant Governor staking claim to form the government in the national capital. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief also met the party MLAs. The legislators then elected him as the leader of the legislative party.
