New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal took oath as Delhi chief minister for the third successive time  Sunday, in a raucous ceremony at the national capital’s Ramlila Maidan.

In his address, Kejriwal thanked his “Delhi family” for voting his party to power, made a strident defence of his ‘freebie politics’, all the while making it clear that he still harboured national ambitions.

The chief minister also said he wants to work in coordination with the Centre and sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s blessings for smooth governance of the national capital.
