Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to meet PM Modi today

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday morning.

The meeting is expected to take place around 11 am at parliament.

This is the first meeting between the two leaders after AAP supremo took charge for the third time as Delhi Chief Minister.

Arvind Kejriwal met Union Home Minister Amit Shah in February. Soon after the meeting, the AAP chief said, “Had a very good and fruitful meeting. Discussed several issues related to Delhi. Both of us agreed that we will work together for development of Delhi.”

Kejriwal took oath as Delhi chief minister last month. He had invited PM Modi for the oath ceremony. However, the Prime Minister could not attend since he was in his parliamentary constituency Varanasi to inaugurate various projects.

“I congratulate Arvind Kejriwal on taking oath as Delhi’s CM. Best wishes to him for a fruitful tenure,” Modi had tweeted.

Responding to PM Modi, Kejriwal had said, “Thank you for the warm wishes sir. I wish you could come today, but I understand you were busy. We must now work together towards making Delhi a city of pride for all Indians.”
