Along with Kejriwal, six others: Manish Sisodia, Girish Soni, Rakhi Birla, Satyendra Jain, Saurabh Bharadwaj and Somnath Bharti, took oath as ministers. The AAP has come to power after winning 28 seats out of 70 in the recently held assembly polls in Delhi. Although it didn’t have the majority, the Congress party extended its unconditional support to AAP for forming government. Now, Kejriwal government has the task to deliver on the promises they have made which include cutting down electricity tarriff and improve water supply to all parts of the national capital.
The new government has to prove majority in the assembly on January 2, 2014.
