Kejriwal to become Delhi's youngest CM today, to take oath at Ramlila Maidan

Days after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) made a dazzling debut in the Assembly elections, Arvind Kejriwal is set to be sworn-in as the Chief Minister of Delhi on Saturday. With the swearing-in, Kejriwal will become the youngest chief minister of Delhi ever.

The 45-year-old will be administered the oath of office, along with six cabinet ministers, at the Ramlila Maidan, the place where he first joined activist Anna Hazare in 2011 to spearhead a movement for stringent anti-corruption laws.

But Hazare will not be there to watch him take charge. "I have spoken to Anna and he has said he will not be able to attend the oath-taking ceremony due to ill-health," Kejriwal said.

Kejriwal and his colleagues would take the Metro to reach Ramlila Maidan. He said he will board a Metro for Barakhamba Road once he leaves home in Kaushambi. From Barakhamba Road, he will travel by car to Ramlila Maidan. He said he did not think his boarding the Metro will pose a security problem since he is a common man.

This comes a day after Kejriwal gave Delhi a sneak preview of his style of governance when he got NDMC officials, including Secretary Vikas Anand, to accompany him to mohalla sabhas in his own New Delhi constituency. Urging people to list their problems, he directed officials there and then to find solutions.
