Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh has congratulated Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal for taking the opportunity to serve the state of Delhi as chief minister.

Ending the fortnight-long dead lock, the AAP had on Tuesday staked claim to form the government in the national capital with outside support from the Congress which it had trounced in the December 4 assembly polls.

Forty four-year-old Kejriwal, a civil society activist and former Indian revenue service officer whose party had stunned mainstream political parties in the Delhi assembly polls, will take over as chief minister later this week.
