Harsh Vardhan, who was the chief ministerial candidate of the BJP, wished Kejriwal success after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Convenor took oath as the Chief Minister.

"The challenge is to fulfill the tall promises made to the people of Delhi... (We) would like to watch when and how early he will fulfill the promises," Harsh Vardhan told media.

He said the BJP will play the role of a ‘sincere, honest’ Opposition in Delhi. Harsh Vardhan claimed that Kejriwal had said during the election campaign that he knew magic to find solutions to various problems."I hope the magic would persist. Why is he (now) saying that magic does not exist?” Harsh Vardhan said.

Harsh Vardhan also said his party will work towards success in the Lok Sabha polls and making Narendra Modi the prime minister. He also said the BJP will protest if the AAP government does not roll back prices of CNG announced on Thursday.

In the face of rising expectations from the AAP government, Kejriwal on Saturday advised people patience, and said he had no ‘magic wand’ to solve all their problems. "We do not believe we have all the answers to all the problems, or that god has given wisdom only to us. But if we all get together, then there is no problem that cannot be resolved," he said after being sworn in as the Chief Minister.

In the Delhi assembly polls, the BJP emerged as the single largest party with 31 seats in a 70-member house. The AAP finished second with 28 seats.
