Arvind Kejriwal to retain old Cabinet ministers in Delhi: Report

New Delhi : Delhi Chief Minister will not be making any changes in his government and the Delhi will be governed by the old Cabinet members, said a report.

The decision comes amid speculations of Raghav Chadha and Atishi joining the government; both of them were the advisors to the government.

According to a report by NDTV, a source said, "The Chief Minister feels that retaining ministers whose work won the party a second term is the right thing to do".

For now, the cabinet would include Manish Sisodia, Satyendar Jain, Gopal Rai, Kailash Gahlot, Imran Hussain and Rajendra Pal Gautam, sources said.

In Delhi Election, Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party won the polls by majority and made a hattrick with 62 seats out of 70.

AAP had steered clear of any controversy, seeking Delhi's mandate on the strength of the work it has done over the last five years -- especially in the sectors of health and education.

In his victory speech, Mr Kejriwal said the mandate signalled the success of a "new kind of politics" that focuses on "work".

"People of Delhi have given a message that they will vote for schools, mohalla clinics, 24-hour electricity and free water. This is a great message for the country," he said.
