Chandigarh (NewsReach) : Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann took charge of his post at the Chief Minister’s Office at the Punjab Civil Secretariat this afternoon after taking oath at Khatkar Kalan, the native village of Shaheed-e-Azam.

There was a celebratory atmosphere on the entry of the 28th Chief Minister of Punjab into the Secretariat and he was warmly welcomed from all sides and from the employees standing in the balcony. The Chief Minister took the guard of honor on behalf of the 82nd Battalion of Punjab Police at the Civil Secretariat. Senior IAS officers including Chief Secretary Anirudh Tiwari and DGP, Punjab VK Bhavwra welcomed the Chief Minister with bouquets.

Waqt aur public bahut badi cheez hai… I’m not here to disown anyone today. I am the chief minister of everyone in Punjab, even those who did not vote for our party. I appeal to you all to not get arrogant. We have to respect even those who did not vote for us. I thank you all and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal,” said Bhagwant Mann.
