Kejriwal meets Delhi chief secretary

Ghaziabad/New Delhi, Dec 24 : Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal, who will be Delhi's chief minister, Tuesday met the national capital's chief secretary to discuss government formation, party sources said.

AAP leader Manish Sisodia, who is likely to be given a key ministry, was also present.

According to party sources, Kejriwal invited Delhi Chief Secretary D.M. Spolia to his Vaishali residence.

"Among other things, Kejriwal wanted to discuss with the chief secretary the financial health of the government," a party source told IANS.

Government sources said Spolia informed Kejriwal that president's clearance has been given for government formation.

"The chief secretary then discussed (with Kejriwal) what further needs to be done in this direction," government sources told IANS.

Kejriwal is also likely to meet other senior bureaucrats during the day.

The AAP, which staked claim to form the government in Delhi after the Bharatiya Janata Party decided against it, will name its ministers Wednesday.

Kejriwal has said he and his ministers will take oath at the Ramlila Maidan, where an anti-corruption movement led by Anna Hazare, was launched. AAP was born out of the anti-corruption movement last year. The date for swearing-in has not been finalised yet.
