Delhi Gets Its Youngest Chief Minister, Creates History Says Debutant Common Man Party
New Delhi: India's regional, the debutant Aam Aadmi (Common Man) party created history, as Delhi got its youngest chief minister on Saturday (December 28).
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief, Kejriwal, will take oath of office as Delhi's new Chief Minister on Saturday at the Ramlila Grounds in the national capital along with six other party legislators.
A leader of AAP, Manish Sisodia said Delhi has created history by choosing a debutant political party, which is just a year old.
"We are not creating history. People of Delhi have created the history. Firstly they have chosen a party who was one year old party, they have shown the trust on us and then advised a party holding 28 seats by coming to various public meetings and asked us to form the government and they are with us. Whatever is going to happen is the result of the history created by the people of Delhi," said Sisodia.
Kejriwal along with his six colleagues, who will be made ministers, will board a metro train to reach the Ramlila grounds for the swearing-in ceremony.
The Chief Minister designate also said VIP passes will not be issued to anyone as the ceremony is open for all, adding that his family will also reach the venue just like the other citizens.
Another leader of AAP, Kumar Vishwas said that earlier politicians were of the opinion that common man of this country was powerless but today the scenario has changed and a revolution has begun.
"Our political leaders think that common man is powerless but I believe whatever common man wants to do they do achieve it. They visit moon and they also stand on Siachen Glacier. This is just the first phase of this fight and today common man has reached to this height, we are little scared and worried that Arvind and our other members do not learn the bad habits of politics and friends and workers like us will always try to save them from bad habits of politics." said Vishwas.
Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which emerged from an anti-corruption movement, trounced the ruling Congress party in Delhi in recent polls. But the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) emerged as the single largest party with 32 members.
India's ruling Congress party, which could manage only eight members in the recently held assembly polls, agreed to give support to AAP to form government that got 28 seats in 70-member Delhi legislature.
However, the BJP refused to form government as it lacked majority.
