Delhi chief minister designate on Thursday appealed to all honest officers to approach him and said he will try and solve people's problems with public participation during a meeting at the Aam Aadmi Party's office.

"I have a team to process these names and will pick the best to run Delhi. We would give such officers good position in our government, and take their help to make strategies," Kejriwal said in Kaushambi.

Kejriwal also requested the people of Delhi to attend his swearing-in ceremony on Saturday at the Ramlila Maidan, where he along with social activist Anna Hazare had launched a massive campaign in 2011 to demand a lokpal.

The AAP convenor said that there will be no VIPs this time around.

On sending an invitation to Hazare for the ceremony, Kejriwal said he would personally talk to him over the phone and invite him.

Kejriwal, who will be Delhi's youngest-ever chief minister at 45, will take oath of office along with six other party MLAs.

He said he would announce his cabinet's portfolios in a day or two.

He will have to prove the majority of his government on the floor of the Delhi assembly within seven days of taking oath. His party has 28 MLAs and Congress has promised the support of its eight legislators.
