New Delhi, February 16
'Surreal', 'dream come true', 'proud moment' — these were the sentiments of people, called Delhi ke Nirmata by AAP for their contribution to the city's development, after they shared the stage with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal during his swearing-in ceremony on Sunday.
Around 50 people from different walks of life were special guests at the event held at the Ramlila Maidan here.
Shabina Naaz, who has been working with night shelters around Chandni Chowk and Kashmiri Gate for the past five years, said she can't believe it really happened. "When the first time I got a call I could not believe that it is really happening. I can tell you that only the AAP government can invite a person as unimportant as me," Naaz said.
Lazwanti, who has been working as a sanitation worker for the last nine years in Delhi, said recognising people like her shows the "affectionate nature" and the ground connect of the AAP government. "No one recognises our contribution but this government is different. It not only recognised our contribution but also honoured us," and an emotional Lazwanti said.
