Speaking to tens and thousands of party supporters at the Ramlila Maidan where he along with six others were sworn in, Kejriwal said: "I remember, during Anna (Hazare) agitation we asked for a corruption-free India. Even our opposition agreed that during our 49 days rule, we were able to end corruption in Delhi. "

Now, we are much more confident. We will make Delhi India's first corruption free state," Kejriwal said to thunderous applause. Kejriwal asked members of his AAP not to become "arrogant" after the massive win in the Delhi assembly polls.

Addressing enthusiastic supporters, Kejriwal said: "The decision to fight polls across the country after winning 28 seats in the last assembly polls was a result of our arrogance. And we could see the results."

"We should not become arrogant after winning 67 out of 70 seats in the assembly this time," he said.The chief minister said he could see a little arrogance in some leaders when they said on television that "we will fight polls in other states".

"This is not right. Why did Congress lose, they had become arrogant. The BJP which got such a massive mandate in Lok Sabha polls in May, but this time (assembly elections) it lost due to arrogance," he said. "I have decided and God has told me, I will only be in Delhi for the next five years and fulfill my responsibility," Kejriwal added.

Kejriwal said that the new government will put a stop to "VIP culture".  "We want to stop this VIP culture. Do you like it when a minister is travelling and roads are blocked and traffic jammed for an hour? "I came to know in European countries, prime ministers are seen standing at bus stops. We need such type of culture. It will take time. But we will do it," Kejriwal said.
