Arvind Kejriwal begins taking the oath of office and secrecy
Arvind Kejriwal and team on the dais now. The swearing in ceremony has just begun.
For Arvind Kejriwal, it all began at Ramlila Maidan
This is the third consecutive time when Arvind Kejriwal will be sworn-in at the historic ground. He had earlier taken the oath of office in 2013 and 2015 at the same venue. Ramlila Maidan served as the battleground for the 51-year-old bureaucrat-turned-politician during the India Against Corruption movement in 2011. The ground draws its name from the Ramlila that is staged there every year.The ground, located in the heart of the national capital, can accommodate over a lakh people. The venue has witnessed several events which shaped the landscape of Indian politics, be it former prime minister Lal Bahadur Shashtri coining the famous 'Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan' slogan in 1965, socialist leader Jayaprakash Narayan addressing a gathering during the 'Total Revolution' movement in the 1970s, and several anti-Congress leaders coming in unison to form the Janata Party just after Emergency in 1977.
Delhi people kept faith in us and trusted the work done by us in the past five years. They believed in development over hatred. We will fulfil ambitions of Delhi the 10 things mentioned in the guarantee card.

Around 50 people from different walks of life who are responsible for 'Delhi nirman' will share the stage with Kejriwal during his swearing-in ceremony, AAP leader Manish Sisodia said. These people would include teachers, bus marshalls, sanitation workers and families of firefighters.
The best way they (BJP MLAs) can cooperate with us in the Legislative Assembly is by remaining critical of the government's work. I want them to keep a strict eye over the government's functioning and work.
