'Little Mufflerman' was star attraction at Kejriwal's swearing-in ceremony on Sunday
Many people, including party lawmaker Bhagwant Mann, were seen shaking hands with the boy and taking pictures with him as Kejriwal took oath as the national capital's chief minister for the third time
The 'Little Mufflerman', the young boy who took social media by storm as the mini version of Arvind Kejriwal, was the centre of attraction at the AAP chief's swearing-in as Delhi Chief Minister on Sunday.
Many people, including party lawmaker Bhagwant Mann, were seen shaking hands with the boy and taking pictures with him as Kejriwal took oath as the national capital's chief minister for the third time.
The young boy was officially invited by AAP to take part in the oath-taking ceremony.
The 'Little Mufflerman' had taken Twitter by storm on counting day as the AAP emerged victorious in the Delhi Assembly elections. AAP's Twitter handle had shared the image of the young boy dressed up as Chief Minister Kejriwal, with a cap bearing the party's symbol, a v-neck maroon sweater and of course a muffler wrapped around his head. The boy also wore spectacles similar to the AAP chief's and even sported a fake mustache as he pointed towards the sky.
Kejriwal had earned the moniker of 'Mufflerman' for his iconic way of dressing in the winter season.
Around 50 people from different walks of life who are responsible for 'Delhi Nirman' shared the stage with Kejriwal during his swearing-in ceremony. These people included teachers, bus marshalls, sanitation workers and families of firefighters.
Among the prominent invitees include-Ratan Jamshed Batliboi, the architect of the famous Signature Bridge. Dalbir Singh, a farmer. Sumit Nagal, an international Tennis Player. Sumit is a class 12th student and he has studied in a Delhi Govt School. Laxman Chaudhry, an auto driver by profession. Manu Gulati, a teacher, who contributed in making Delhi better.
"They all are architects of Delhi Governance Model", AAP had said.
The AAP nearly repeated its 2015 performance in the elections, sweeping the Assembly polls winning 62 seats in the 70-member Assembly, in the face of a high-voltage campaign by the BJP, which fielded a battery of Union Ministers and Chief Ministers in its electioneering spearheaded by Home Minister Amit Shah.
