As celebrations erupted at the AAP office on Tuesday amid counting of votes, one-year-old Avyaan Tomar – son of an AAP worker – was seen with party supporters.
Arvind Kejriwal, who led the AAP to a landslide victory in the Delhi Assembly poll, will have a special guest on February 16 when he takes oath as the chief minister for the third consecutive time.
The special guest is the one-year-old who shot to fame after he was spotted at the AAP office dressed like Kejriwal – and AAP cap, spectacles, a sweater and muffler and even sported a moustache. The AAP went on to call him the mini version ‘Mufflerman’.
In a ‘big’ announcement on Twitter on Thursday, the AAP said, “Baby Mufflerman is invited to the swearing-in ceremony of Arvind Kejriwal on Feb 16.” Suit up, junior, the party tweeted.
AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal will take oath as the chief minister in a grand public ceremony on February 16 at the Ramlila Maidan.
The oath-taking ceremony at 10 am at the very same historic ground from where 51-year-old Kejriwal along with Anna Hazare led a massive anti-corruption agitation in 2011.
All the newly elected party MLAs have being asked by party leaders to ensure huge participation from their constituencies, according to party sources. AAP won 62 seats in the 70-member Assembly with the BJP accounting for the remaining 8 and the Congress drawing a blank.
Addressing a press conference at the AAP headquarters, senior party leader Manish Sisodia, who was the deputy chief minister in the outgoing government, said the cabinet ministers will also take oath along with Kejriwal.
The possible induction of young first-time MLAs Raghav Chadha and Atishi Marlena was a subject of much speculation.
But AAP sources told PTI that the party chief is unlikely to tinker with the existing combination and is set to retain all the incumbent ministers. The sources said the portfolios of the ministers will be decided later.
