Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung has directed Kejriwal to prove majority of his government on the floor of the House within seven days from the date on which he takes oath of office.

The direction came after President Pranab Mukherjee accepted Lieutenant Governor’s proposal on government formation by Aam Aadmi Party with outside support from the Congress.

"The President has directed that Kejriwal may be asked to prove his majority on the floor of the House within seven days from the date on which he takes oath of office," senior officials in Delhi government said.

Kejriwal, who led the Aam Aadmi Party to a remarkable victory in Assembly elections, will take oath of office as Delhi Chief Minister on Saturday at Ramlila Maidan along with six other party MLAs.
