Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal will take oath as Delhi Chief Minister on Saturday following the party’s historical victory in the Assembly Elections on Tuesday.
“Arvind Kejriwal will take oath as the Delhi Chief Minister on February 14 at Ramlila Maidan,” AAP leader Ashutosh said after the party’s victory.
After AAP had thrown a surprise by uprooting Congress out of power in 2013 Assembly elections as a debutant party, Kejriwal had taken oath as Delhi’s seventh chief minister on December 28 at a public ceremony in the historic Ramlila Maidan, the venue of the Lokpal movement.
He had defeated the three-time Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dixit on her home-turf by a margin of 25,864 votes.
However, after serving the government for 49 days, he had resigned on February 14 last year after his push for the anti-corruption Jan Lokpal Bill was blocked in the state Assembly by BJP and Congress.
