New Delhi: Exactly a year after he resigned as Delhi Chief Minister, AAP convenor Arvind Kejriwal will be taking oath as the CM once again on 14 February at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan.
“Arvind Kejriwal will take oath as the Delhi Chief Minister on February 14 at Ramlila Maidan,” AAP leader Ashutosh said after the party’s landslide victory in the Delhi Assembly polls.
Kejriwal emerged victorious in the high-profile New Delhi constituency by handing over a crushing defeat to BJP’s Nupur Sharma by a huge margin of 31,583 votes.
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 28 December at a public ceremony in the historic Ramlila Maidan, the venue of the Lokpal movement.
He had defeated three-time Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit on her home-turf by a margin of 25,864 votes.
However, after serving the government for 49 days, he had resigned on 14 February 2014, after his push for the anti-corruption Jan Lokpal Bill was blocked in the state Assembly by BJP and Congress.
