New Delhi: With Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal taking over the helms of the government, decision to provide 700 litres of water daily to households is expected on Monday.

Soon after the AAP leader took oath as the seventh CM of Delhi at the historic Ramlila Maidan on Saturday, Kejriwal had said he would declare his next move on the water issue on Monday.

A meeting with the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) today is likely to address the issue.
On Tuesday, the Delhi CM will discuss the next step on the issue of power tariffs and a decision on the same is also expected.

The developments came shortly after Kejriwal was sworn-in as the seventh Chief Minister of Delhi.

After the swearing-in ceremony, Kejriwal lost no time and transferred nine IAS officers, including DJB CEO Debashree Mukherjee, and held several cabinet meetings.
Kejriwal met hundreds of people who flocked his Kaushambi residence on Sunday to congratulate and tell him about their grievances.

Speaking to them, Kejriwal said that he needed a week or ten days` time to settle down and then the government would be able to prove its mettle.

"We have formed the government but now a lot needs to be done..We can`t do it alone, we all need to work together," the CM said.

Even anti-graft crusador Anna Hazare congratulated Kejriwal and said, “If Arvind does something different in politics it will be a lesson for people in politics, not a sin to enter politics. ”

Due to the surging crowd, police had to reportedly make special arrangements to ensure the safety of CM and restrict the people.
