NEW DELHI, INDIA - FEBRUARY 14: Supporters of the Aam Aadmi Party during the swearing-in ceremony of AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal at the Ramlila Ground on February 14, 2015 in New Delhi, India. Arvind Kejriwal promised to make Delhi India's first corruption-free city and end what he called its 'VIP culture' as he was sworn in as chief minister on Saturday in front of a huge crowd of cheering supporters. He also said the anti-corruption helpline started during the previous term of the AAP government would be resumed shortly. He directed everyone to bring it to the government's notice if anyone offered them bribes. He added, '67 out of 70 seats is god's miracle. God wants us to do something big. He has chosen us as a medium.' Lieutenant Governor Dr Najeeb Jung administered the oath of office to the AAP Cabinet. Others who took oath as ministers on Saturday were Manish Sisodia, Asim Ahmed Khan, Sandeep Kumar, Satyendra Jain, Gopal Rai and Jitendra Tomar.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal expressed unhappiness over posters and hoardings congratulating the party for its landside victory in Delhi polls that have come up across the city, saying Aam Aadmi Party was against this kind of politics.

"Some people have put out posters and hoardings congratulating about the victory all across the city. This is not right. We are precisely against this kind of politics.

"If the volunteers want to celebrate victory, they should serve the people," Kejriwal posted on Facebook.

Kejriwal also asked people to report to authorities if they came across any such poster or hoarding.

Within an hour of posting the message, it was liked by over 14,000 people and shared by over 1,000.
