The date for the swearing-in ceremony was finalised at a meeting Kejriwal held with Chief Secretary D M Spolia. Top officials in Delhi Government said Kejriwal and six AAP MLAs will be sworn-in in a public ceremony at 12 noon in the Ramlila Maidan, the venue of Anna Hazare's anti-corruption movement two years ago.
One-year-old AAP had made an electrifying debut in elections winning 28 seats in the 70-member Assembly and decimating Congress which bagged only eight seats. The BJP, along with its ally SAD's one seat, had 32 MLAs but the party declined to form the government, citing lack of majority. Kejriwal had announced formation of AAP on October 2, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, last year and it was formally launched on November 26 coinciding with the anniversary of India's adoption of its Constitution in 1949.
