On being asked about his relationship with the AAP government after taking oath, he said, ‘‘This is a speculative thing and I don’t know how the relationship will improve.’’ ‘‘We will sit together and talk,’’ he said and thanked President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for giving him the responsibility.
