NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal assumed office Saturday shortly after taking oath at the Ramlila Maidan here.

Kejriwal along with his entire cabinet reached the Delhi secretariat building from the Ramlila Maidan.

The Delhi chief minister met officials and ministers at his office, officials said.

Kejriwal, 46, led the AAP to a thumping win in the Delhi assembly election. The party won a staggering 67 of the 70 seats, leaving the BJP with just three seats. The Congress was wiped out.

This is the second time Kejriwal is becoming Delhi's chief minister. He became chief minister the first time in December 2013 but resigned after just 49 days - on this day last year.
