Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday emerged victorious in the Assembly polls, clinching 67 seats in the 70-member House.
Kejriwal repeated his triumph in the high-profile New Delhi constituency by handing a crushing defeat to BJP’s Nupur Sharma by a huge margin of 31,583 votes.
The historic venue is once again set to reverberate with the sounds of people hailing Kejriwal and his resurgent party, which in the 2013 polls had staged a stunning debut, getting 28 seats.
The bureaucrat-turned-politician and his winning candidates had chosen the same ground for getting administered the oath of office last time.
Preparations are afoot at Ramlila Maidan here for Arvind Kejriwal’s swearing-in ceremony as Delhi Chief Minister on February 14.
The ground, which served as the battleground for the 46-year-old anti-graft crusader during the Anna Hazare-led India Against Corruption movement, is getting decked up to host Kejriwal for his second oath-taking ceremony.
