New Delhi [India], Nov. 1 : Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has called for a high-level meeting to ensure work at war-footing and review the air pollution in Delhi.

New Delhi: Senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia, a close confidant of party chief Arvind Kejriwal, is all set to be the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi.
The decision to make Sisodia the Deputy CM was taken at a meeting of AAP's Political Affairs Committee (PAC) Wednesday night at Kejriwal's residence in Kaushambhi, party sources said.
Sisodia is being given the responsibility so that Chief Minister-designate Kejriwal can focus on building the party at the national level, they said.
Sisodia is credited with strengthening AAP at the grassroot level after it lost all the seven parliamentary constituencies in the Lok Sabha elections last year.
