Former SP leader to join AAP?

Ghaziabad, Dec 29 : Giving a clear hint that he might join the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) soon, former Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Kamal Farooqui met Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday.

" Yes, definitely, its catching up the entire nation," Farooqui told reporters when asked about the possibility of joining the party.

He said he will announce his decision on joining the AAP on Monday.

The SP had sacked Farooqui in September following his controversial remark on the arrest of co-founder of terror outfit Indian Mujahideen (IM) Yasin Bhatkal.

Creating history and scripting a new political discourse for India mired by graft and show of pomp by leaders, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal took oath as the seventh and youngest chief minister of Delhi in the open Ramlila Maidan, promising a common people's government in true sense and pledging to root out corruption.

In his swearing-in speech, 45-year-old Arvind Kejriwal, who and his team came to take oath in metro trains shunning the trappings of VIP culture, said it is the people of Delhi who will run the government in the national capital now on.

Arvind Kejriwal himself retains Power, Home, Finance, Planning and Vigilance ministries.
