Aam Admi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal today requested Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung to allow him to take oath on December 26 at Ramlila Maidan, from where the anti-corruption movement had started.

In an half-an-hour meeting with Jung, Kejriwal conveyed his party's decision to form a government in Delhi, and also requested him to allow the oath taking ceremony to be held at Ramlila Maidan on December 26.

Ramlila Maidan was the venue from where Anna Hazare along with Kejriwal and others started the anti-graft movement last year.

Sources said the LG has sent his report to the President citing all the discussions that took place between him and Kejriwal, along with his letter.

The LG office is now waiting for confirmation from the President regarding the government formation, sources from LG office said.

Kejriwal said today that AAP has given a letter to Lt Governor expressing its readiness to form the government.

"We were called by the Lt Governor to discuss government formation on December 14. We had sought time to take a decision as ours is a party of common people and we wanted to take their views," he said.

Kejriwal said the decision was taken after a meeting of the party's Political Affairs Committee today morning in which the results of the referendum were discussed.
