New Delhi, Feb 16 : A wave of patriotism flowed through Ramlila Maidan on Sunday where Aam Aadmi Chief Arvind Kejriwal took oath as Delhi Chief Minsiter for the third time.

The tricolour took over the usual blue and white of the AAP flag. The AAP supporters also shouted slogans of 'Jai Hind and Vande Mataram'. When Kejriwal reached the stage, slogans of 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' reverberated through the iconic Ramlila Maidan.

The theme at the Ramlila Maidan among the enthusiastic crowd seemed to be that of nationalism with patriotic songs being played over the loudspeakers. Songs of film 'Border', 'Rang De Basanti' were also played here.

At the Ramlila Maidan, AAP supporters holding tricolours also displayed posters that said "Nayak 2 is back again". The poster has a picture of actor Anil Kapoor along with that of Arvind Kejriwal wearing the famous 'Anna cap' with Aam Aadmi written on it.

After Kejriwal, his cabinet ministers Manish Sisodia, Satyendra Jain, Kailash Gahlot, Rajendra Pal took oath, while Gopal Rai took oath in the name of nation's freedom fighters, and Imran Hussain took oath in the name of Allah.

Aam Aadmi Party supporters in large numbers thronged to Ramlila Maidan here on Sunday for the party chief Arvind Kejriwal's swearing-in ceremony.

Bureaucrat-turned-politician Kejriwal was compared with the the fictional character played in the Hindi film Nayak.

The Ramlila Maidan looked like that of Anna movement of 2012.
