''In the last five years, our only effort has been to bring happiness and relief to every Delhiite. This is not my win, this is the victory of every Delhiite, of every family,'' he added.

The Delhi chief minister said he invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the oath taking ceremony. 

''I had sent an invitation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji for this event. He could not come maybe he is busy at some other event. But through this platform, I want to take blessings from PMji and the central government to develop Delhi andtake it forward,'' he said.

Kejriwal also hit out at the critics who accused him of freebies and said, ''some people say Kejriwal is giving everything for free. Nature has ensured every valuable thing in the world is free, be it Mother's love, father's blessings or Shravan Kumar's dedication. So, Kejriwal loves his people and hence this love is free'', he further said.
