New Delhi: With Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal all set to take oath as Delhi`s Chief Minister, his political rival and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kiran Bedi on Saturday said that it was a day of celebration and reflection.
"Today is a day of celebration and reflection. When both the processes are done with true responsibility and commitment, India is the real winner," tweeted Bedi.
The former IPS officer, who was the BJP`s chief ministerial candidate for the recently concluded Delhi polls, faced a crushing defeat in her constituency Krishna Nagar, which had been a stronghold of the saffron party.
Kejriwal will be administered the oath of office and secrecy by Delhi`s Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung at the Ramlila Grounds at 12 noon.
Six other AAP leaders - Manish Sisodia, Asim Ahmed Khan, Sandeep Kumar, Satyendar Jain, Gopal Rai and Jitender Singh Tomar will also be sworn-in as ministers.
Kejriwal is expected to keep the key portfolios of Home, Power and Finance with himself, while giving Education, PWD and Urban Development to his confidante Manish Sisodia, who will also be the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi.
The BJP managed to win only three seats while the AAP swept the assembly elections, winning an unprecedented 67 seats in the 70-member Delhi Assembly.
