Aam Aadmi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal was sworn in as Delhi chief minister for the third time at the Ramlila Maidan today.

Manish Sisodia, Satyendar Jain, Imran Hussain, Rajendra Pal Gautam, Kailash Gahlot and Gopal Rai took oath as council of ministers in the newly-sworn Delhi Cabinet on Sunday at the Ramlila Maidan.

Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won 62 seats in the Delhi Assembly elections, while the Bharatiya Janata Party bagged eight seats.

Arvind Kejriwal said he wants to work in coordination with the Centre and also sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s blessings for smooth governance of the national capital.

Arvind Kejriwal said as the elections are over, the politics is also over and he has forgiven his opponents for the remarks they made during the poll campaign.

Referring himself as Delhi’s son, he said this is not his victory but of every single Delhiite.

“We want to seek Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s blessing for smooth governance of Delhi,” Arvind Kejriwal said in his address at the Ramlila Maidan here after taking oath.

In his earlier tenure, the AAP supremo had several run-ins with the Centre.

“Your son has taken oath for the third time as the Delhi chief minister. This is not my victory but yours,” Arvind Kejriwal.

Arvind Kejriwal said he did not give step-motherly treatment to anyone and has worked for all in the last five years.
