“Yeh aam aadmi ki sarkar sabki sarkar hain, agar aapne humein vote diya yah nahi diya,” said Delhi’s chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, after taking oath on Saturday (February 14), exactly a year after he quit.

However, it was a mature Kejriwal that Delhi saw and heard at Ramlila grounds. As he acknowledged “AAP became arrogant and fought Lok Sabha elections from other States and (people) taught a lesson.”

Committing himself to stay in Delhi Kejriwal said “It was a mistake to contest Lok Sabha elections. I will focus on Delhi for five years.”

Oscillating between resolve and spirituality, Kejriwal said “this has to be a miracle. God is trying to tell us something. He has a plan. I'm grateful that God chose us as his medium.” In the same breath he proclaimed that “we will make Delhi the first corruption-free state in India.”

“If someone asks for a bribe, don't refuse them. Record it on your mobile phone when he asks for money,” he told Delhi’s citizens.

And to the police he said “If anyone wears our topi and indulges in gundagardi, take action against him and put him in jail.”

And this should make all happy and relieved. Kejriwal said “I promises Delhi's citizens, traders, that no official will harass them. We want businesses to grow.”

“We want to end VIP culture. We will neither have red beacons on top of ministers’ vehicles, nor on the CM's car. It will take some time and we initiated that during our 49-day tenure last year,” Kejriwal promised.

He also dished out advice to the media: “I request the media, they keep asking me 24 hrs 36 hrs will you deliver, my appeal (we) can’t work like that. We will work day and night for the people of Delhi. But I request the media to exercise patience.”

Kejrieal, who has met prime minister Narendra Modi, said “

I am ready. And I have hope that the Prime Minister is also ready to help us and work together. We want to work together with the Central Govt, want construction co-operation to make Delhi a great place to live in.”
