New Delhi: After swearing-in as Delhi Chief Minister for third consecutive time, Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said he is everyone’s leader, irrespective of their party affiliation.
“In elections, some voted for AAP, while some for BJP and Congress…. but today when I took oath as Chief Minister of Delhi, I am Chief Minister for all. I am AAP’s Chief Minister, BJP’s Chief Minister and Congress Chief Minister and other parties as well,” said Kejriwal here at Ramlila Maidan.
“Party affiliation never stopped me from working for everyone,” he said.
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.
Kejriwal was administered the oath of office and secrecy by Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.
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.
