आज @ArvindKejriwal सरकार में मंत्री के रूप में तीसरी बार शपथ लेने जा रहा हूँ. दिल्ली की जनता का इस प्यार और सम्मान के लिए तहे दिल से आभार. ईमानदारी और शिक्षा की राजनीति के लिए जान भी हाज़िर है.— Manish Sisodia (@msisodia) February 16, 2020
The Aam Aadmi Party has invited 50 people from different walks of life, who have contributed to Delhi's "nirman" to share the stage with Kejriwal during his swearing-in ceremony.
According to the police, 2,000 to 3,000 personnel from the Delhi Police and paramilitary forces, including the CRPF, will be deployed as part of the security arrangements. Drones are likely to be used for surveillance.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been invited to the ceremony, besides BJP MPs and MLAs from Delhi. The AAP had said no chief minister or political leader from other states will be part of the event as it will be a "Delhi-specific" ceremony.
On Saturday, Kejriwal called a dinner meeting of his ministers-designate to discuss the roadmap for Delhi's development, especially the initiatives that need to be prioritised in the coming three months, according to party functionaries.
