Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Having wrested power in the capital by promising sweeping change in
policy matters and functioning of bureaucracy, Arvind Kejriwal began his stint as Delhi
Chief Minister on a flourishing note on Saturday.
Within hours of assuming office in the
national capital, the Aam Aadmi Party
leader shunted nine senior bureaucrats
from their departments and laid down
actionable deadlines for delivering on key promises made by him and his party.
Seven key decisions and announcements he made on his first day in the office
included —
Delhi Jal Board CEO Debashree Mukherjee transferred to Delhi Transport
Corporation.
Power Secretary RK Verma shifted to Education department.
Delhi Finance Secretary M M Kutty transferred to Social Welfare Department.

Anna Hazare, Manish Sisodia
He met with Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi and discussed ways of improving the law and order situation, especially
one of the key factors of concern in the national capital — women's security.
Kejriwal promised 'news' by Monday on his promise of providing 700 litres of water daily to all households in the city.
He said he was in consultation with senior officers and by Tuesday or Wednesday, he would be able to say something on his
promise of slashing electricity tarriff.
The use of red beacons on official cars in Delhi was banned. No PSO and escort vehicle to be provided to officials. Security
to be allowed based on threat perception and Delhi cabinet will decide on the recipient.
Kejriwal's first day in the Delhi Secretariat was spent in hectic brainstorming sessions with top government officials, a cabinet
meeting on the new government's strategy and hide-and-seek with journalists.
After being sworn in as the chief minister, Kejriwal reached Delhi Secretariat at around 2 pm in his blue WagonR car only to
find scores of eager journalists wanting to ask questions, mainly: How will he bring changes overnight?
He was besieged by a horde of journalists as he approached his office on the third floor of the sprawling office located in ITO
in central Delhi. But he managed to make his way to his office room.
After some moments, the chief minister emerged from the room and held a brief press briefing in which he announced the
portfolios of his six cabinet ministers and the agenda of the cabinet meeting that he held at 2.30 pm.
After the cabinet meeting, in which the heads of the departments and cabinet ministers were present, he held back-to-back
meetings with Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi, officials of the power department, the Delhi Jal Board and other
departments.
Interestingly, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator Satya Prakash Rana met Kejriwal to complain that he has promised free
water to households having piped water and what has he planned for those who don't have such access to water supply.
