Kejriwal Swears In As Delhi CM, Seeks Modi’s ‘Blessings’

(ANI): Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal was on Sunday sworn-in as the Chief Minister of Delhi for the third time in a row at Ramlila Maidan here, after his party registered a massive victory in the recently concluded Delhi Assembly polls.

After taking oath as Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday sought blessings of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to develop the national capital.

Kejriwal said that Prime Minister may be busy with some other schedule as he did not attend his oath ceremony.

“I had sent an invitation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji for this event. He could not come maybe he is busy at some other event. But through this platform, I want to take blessings from Prime Minister ji and central government to develop Delhi and take it forward,” said Kejriwal while addressing a gathering at Ramlila Maidan.

The sprawling Ramlila Maidan reverberated with sounds of thousands of people cheering for the AAP leader.

Kejriwal who received a hero’s welcome here had extended an invitation to the people of Delhi urging them to attend the swearing-in ceremony to witness “the son of Delhi” taking oath on Sunday.

The AAP nearly repeated its 2015 performance in the elections, sweeping the Assembly polls winning 62 seats in the 70-member Assembly, in the face of a high-voltage campaign by the BJP, which fielded a battery of Union Ministers and Chief Ministers in its electioneering spearheaded by Home Minister Amit Shah.

Calling himself a son of Delhi, Kejriwal asked people to call their villages and tell their families that their “son has become Chief Minister of Delhi”.

“Your son has taken oath for the third time as Delhi Chief Minister. This is not my victory but yours,” he said.
