Apart from them, Avyaan Tomar, known as ‘Mini Mufflerman’ and ‘Baby Kejriwal’, was there at the oath ceremony. The one-year-old, dressed up like Kejriwal, was spotted at the AAP office on the results day. But he could not meet Kejriwal.
The heads of Delhi government schools along with 20 teachers, including vice principals, entrepreneurship mindset curriculum coordinators, happiness coordinators and teacher development coordinators witnessed the swearing-in of Aam Aadmi Party government.
Notably, no chief minister or political leader from other states were part of the event as it was a “Delhi-specific” ceremony. CM Kejriwal had extended an invitation to PM Modi, but the latter could not attend the swearing-in as he was in his constituency Varanasi to inaugurate various developmental projects.
The AAP had bagged 62 seats in the 70-member Delhi Assembly, while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) bagged the remaining eight seats. The Congress drew a blank for the second consecutive time.
