After taking oath as the seventh Chief Minister of Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal said “The struggle was to give power to the people of Delhi.”

In his first speech as the Chief Minister, Mr. Kejriwal said “We don’t have solutions to all problems. We don’t have a magic wand to solve problems immediately.”

Mr. Kejriwal also added that the fight would be very long and said, “We will need the support of people to end corruption in the capital and the country”.

In a warning to his minsters and partymen, he said they should not get arrogant with power. “We were born to remove the arrogance of big parties. We should be wary that no other party has to take birth to dismantle us“.

On the confidence motion on the floor of Delhi Assembly next week, he said his party was not bothered about its fate as “we are not here to grab power ... Whether we pass or fail in the test of confidence motion...we are ready to face elections, if we fail. The people will vote us (back ) with a huge majority,” he said to cheers from a huge crowd at the historic Ramlila Maidan, the fast venue of the campaign for Jan Lokpal Bill initiated by Anna Hazare more than two years ago

The Delhi Chief Minister asserted “The main problems in the country arise due to dirty politics and we have to clean it.” He also said “Anna Hazare was opposed to entering into politics. I told him that we will have to enter it to clean it”.

He also asserted “If anyone asks for a bribe in government office, file a complaint with us and we will catch them all red-handed.”
