Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal takes morning walk with wife, interacts with locals


A day after being sworn-in as the Delhi Chief Minister, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal was seen taking a walk along with his wife on early Sunday morning and meeting locals.

The Delhi CM was seen walking near his residence in Kaushambi in the morning.

Addressing some 100,000 cheering supporters at the Ramlila Maidan after being sworn in, Kejriwal, 46, also sought the status of a full state for Delhi, saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi had too many issues to take care of and Delhi must be left to Delhiites.

A few hours later, Kejriwal – sounding and looking unwell – drove to the Delhi Secretariat. He came to the venue after taking Crocin. In a first of its kind in the country, the AAP announced that Kejriwal will not hold any portfolio but only oversee the work of ministers and legislators.

The huge gathering went wild as Kejriwal took the oath of office from Lt Governor Najeeb Jung — followed by six ministers — and then spoke in Hindi. Besides Sisodia, the deputy chief minister, the other ministers are Satyendra Jain, Sandeep Kumar, Gopal Rai, Asim Ahmed Khan and Jitendra Singh Tomar.
