New Delhi16.02.20-: AAP National Convener Shri Arvind Kejriwal took oath as the Chief Minister of Delhi at Ram Leela Maidan for the third time on Sunday. 50 people from diverse backgrounds were also invited to the swearing-in ceremony as ‘Dilli Ke Nirmata’, for their contribution towards the development of Delhi.

Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was administered the oath of office and secrecy by Lt Governor Shri Anil Baijal, followed by his Cabinet colleagues Shri Manish Sisodia, Shri Satyendar Jain, Shri Gopal Rai, Shri Kailash Gahlot, Shri Rajendra Pal Gautam, Shri Imran Hussain.

After the swearing-in ceremony concluded, “Your son has taken the oath of office for the third time today. This is not my victory, this is your victory. This is the victory of each and every Delhiite, every mother, sister, youth, student, teacher, and every family of Delhi. In the last five years, we have tried to bring prosperity and happiness in the lives of each and every Delhiite. In the last five years, we have tried to increase the pace of development in Delhi, and we will continue to do so in the next five years. You can tell your peers back in your home towns, that you do not need to worry because your son is the Chief Minister now.”

CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal reiterated that he is the Chief Minister of every person in Delhi irrespective of their affiliations to different political parties. He said, “Many people in Delhi must have voted for AAP, BJP, Congress, and other parties, but today, I am in front of you as the Chief Minister of all. I am everybody’s Chief Minister, be it supporters of AAP, Congress or BJP. I have never discriminated against them in the last five years. I have worked for everybody, and never discriminated against people who did not vote for me. I have worked in areas even when the residents of that society were supporters of the BJP. I ensured that drains, sewers, and roads are installed in every locality. I want to say to the 2 crore people of Delhi, irrespective of whom you voted for in the elections or what party you belong to, you are my family now. You can come to me without any hesitation and I will complete all your work irrespective of your affiliation, caste and whether you are rich or poor.”

“We have to do a lot of work in Delhi. I cannot do it alone, I need your support in making Delhi the most developed and beautiful city in the world. I want to work together with everybody. It is obvious to have scuffles between various political parties during elections. We have forgiven our opposition for whatever remarks they made on us. I would also like to request the opposition parties to forget what happened during the elections. I want to work together with all the parties for the development of Delhi. I want to work together with the Central government to make Delhi a world-class city. I had also invited Hon’ble PM for the oath ceremony today, but I guess he could not make it because he is busy. I want the Hon’ble PM to bless us so that we can work for the development and progress of Delhi,” he said.

Shri Arvind Kejriwal said that the people of Delhi have given birth to a new kind of politics in the country during the Delhi Assembly elections, which is the politics of work and performance. He said, “This is the politics of schools, hospitals, 24-hour and cheap power supply, water, roads, women's security, corruption-free Delhi, and politics of a 21st century India. This new politics is being discussed all over the country. Governments across the world have started constructing Mohalla Clinics, schools, hospitals. State Governments across the country have started providing free electricity. You are being talked about all across Delhi. Politicians across the country say state government schools cannot be improved, and people here give the Kejriwal government as an example, politicians across the country say schools cannot be improved, and people give the Kejriwal government as an example,” said Mr. Arvind Kejriwal.

Mr. Arvind Kejriwal said, “It is a good day for us. We have with us 50 special guests as ‘Dilli Ke Nirmata’. Delhi is not created by us, or the politicians, or parties. Delhi is Delhi because of teachers, students, doctors, auto drivers, rickshaw pullers, businessmen, architects, etc. I am happy that we have with us Mr. Dalbir Singh today from Najafgarh. He is retired now and a farmer. We have metro pilot Nidhi Gupta with us. We have bus marshal Arun Kumar, who saved a girl from being kidnapped by risking his life. Delhi is run by all these ‘Nimratas’.”

CM Shri Kejriwal said, “They say Kejriwal is making everything free, but I want to say that everything precious in the world is free. The love that a mother has for her child is precious and priceless, the fact that a father stays hungry to afford a good future for his child is priceless. Shravan Kumar served his parents with all his might. Kejriwal is your Shravan Kumar. Do I start charging people for education and health? Do I start charging patients for their operations? That is not possible.”

CM Arvind Kejriwal said that it is a dream of everybody to have a developed Delhi and India which can be appreciated all across the world. “India will be appreciated across London, Tokyo, Paris, Australia, Africa, and all the countries. This would be possible only through new politics which has been started by you all.” said Shri Arvind Kejriwal.

Mr. Arvind Kejriwal ended his address with versing the gospel song ‘Hum Honge Kamyab..’
which became a key anthem of all the freedom movements in India.
