NEW DELHI, Feb 11 : Indian anti-corruption campaigner Arvind Kejriwal, who won a landslide victory in the Delhi state elections, has invited all of Delhi to his swearing in ceremony on Saturday.
The leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will be sworn in as the chief minister at the sprawling Ramlila grounds, and not in the assembly as is tradition.
The AAP won 67 of 70 assembly seats. The results came as a huge setback for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose BJP won the other three seats.
Modi led the BJP to victory in last May's general election.
He has enjoyed huge popularity since taking office, winning a string of local elections and wooing international investors and world leaders.
In a message broadcast on FM radio channels, Kejriwal invited everyone to come to Saturday's ceremony at Ramlila Maidan - a huge ground in Delhi often used for political rallies and religious congregations.
"I'm not the chief minister, you are all Delhi's chief minister," he said.
The AAP has invited the prime minister, federal ministers and all MPs from Delhi to the swearing-in.     ?BBC Online
