New Delhi: Senior AAP leader and Kejriwal’s confidante Manish Sisodia could be appointed Deputy Chief Minister in the Aam Aadmi Party government.
If sources are to be believed, Sisodia, MLA from Patparganj, is likely to be appointed the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi. Sources also said that Sisodia, who triumphed over his former colleague Vinod Kumar Binny by a margin of over 28,000 votes, will be given additional the charge of Education, PWD and Revenue.
He was briefly a Cabinet minister in the 49-day long AAP government between late December 2013 and February 2014. He was given responsibility for Education, PWD, Urban Development, local bodies and land and building.
Sources also said that making Sisodia Deputy CM can be a tactical move, as AAP chief may shift his focus to Punjab and other states. AAP has 4 MP’s from Punjab.
Arvind Kejriwal will take oath as the chief minister of Delhi on February 14, exactly a year after he resigned from the top post ending his government in 49 days.
