Delhi's Chief Minister designate Arvind Kejriwal will meet Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu and President Pranab Mukherjee on Wednesday.
Kejriwal, whose Aam Aadmi Party made a clean sweep of the Delhi assembly polls, winning 67 of the 70 seats on offer, was unanimously elected as the leader of the legislative party yesterday.
He later met Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung at the latter's official residence and conveyed the news.
Jung will now send the report regarding the matter to President Pranab Mukherjee, allowing Kejriwal to stake claim towards government formation in the national capital.
The AAP chief has also been provided Z-plus security by the Delhi police.
According to reports, 12 commandos armed with automatic weapons will trail the Delhi chief minister-designate and armed security forces will guard his Kaushambi residence.
