"After taking oath as Delhi's CM, I will call cabinet meeting at 2 PM on Saturday," the chief minister designate told reporters here.

Before going to Delhi Secretariat for the meeting, Kejriwal said that he will go to Rajghat to pay homage to the father of the nation. Kejriwal said that he will also meet the Transport Department officials tomorrow to discuss the problems being faced by auto rickshaw drivers in Delhi.

Today, leaders of auto Union met Kejriwal and put forth their twelve problems to which Kejriwal said he will look into after a meeting with the Transport Department officials. Giving details of his tomorrow's schedule, Kejriwal said that he will travel by Metro from his house in Kaushambi to reach Barakhamba and from there he will reach Ramlila ground in his car for the swearing in ceremony.
