The Delhi CM designate today called Anna and requested him to attend the oath taking ceremony of his party leaders.
While calling upon people to come in large numbers at Ramlila Hround for the swearing-in ceremony, Kejriwal yesterday said he wpould speak to Anna and ask him to grace the occasion.
"Anna Hazare is my guru and I would personally talk to him on phone to invite him for the ceremony," he had said.
In Ralegan Siddhi, Hazare had said he would not be able to attend the ceremony on health grounds.
Kejriwal, who tapped into public anger to take the AAP to the corridors of power, will take oath on Saturday as Delhi`s seventh chief minister, with his party promising to "completely overhaul" the system. The swearing-in ceremony will be held at the Ramlila Maidan, where Anna Hazare fasted for 12 days for Jan Lokpal Bill with Kejriwal as one of his aides.
