New Delhi: Congress, BJP and Left parties on Saturday congratulated Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, hoping that the new government will “live up to the expectations” of the people and fulfil promises made by his Aam Aadmi Party during the assembly polls.
Congress general secretary Shakeel Ahmed said the party will “continue their support” if the new regime fulfils the promises made earlier. “He has become the Chief Minister… and I hope he will fulfil the promises based on which people voted for him and his party. I congratulate him. I wish he is able to fulfil the expectations of the people,” he said.
“The job of running a government is with the ruling party and we’ll all work together. Delhi people have problems of electricity, water, jhuggi and pucca houses, permanent jobs for contractual employees…and if they fulfil those promises, Congress will continue to support the new government,” he added.
BJP President Rajnath Singh too congratulated Delhi’s seventh Chief Minister on Saturday while refraining from attacking AAP, whose spectacular debut in the 70-member Delhi Assembly polls stopped BJP from forming government in the national capital though it emerged as the single largest party.
“I heartily congratulate Arvind Kejriwal on taking the oath of office and secrecy. And, I wish AAP and Congress together will give a stable government. And, their government will fully live up to the expectations of the the people. I wish the government fulfils the promises made,” Singh said.
The BJP chief, however, added that he would not give a “reaction” on the occasion as it is “not appropriate”. “Because in a healthy democracy, all must maintain a certain code of conduct,” he said.
Leading a fledgling party that stunned both political heavyweights in the Delhi polls, Kejriwal on Saturday took charge of the government as the seventh Chief Minister of Delhi, hailing it as “not AAP’s government but of the 1.5 crore people of Delhi”. (PTI)
