Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who took oath for a third consecutive term on Sunday, will meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah this afternoon. This is his first meeting with Mr Shah after his Aam Aadmi Party swept assembly elections in the national capital, winning 62 of 70 assembly seats.
Arvind Kejriwal and his six ministers took oath on Sunday at a mega ceremony at Ramlila Maidan, outside Delhi’s iconic Red Fort, which was attended by a huge crowd.
Mr Kejriwal had invited PM Modi, the BJP’s seven Delhi MPs and the eight newly elected BJP MLAs to his swearing-in ceremony but none attended.
PM Modi, who was in his parliamentary constituency Varanasi on Sunday to inaugurate various projects, later congratulated the AAP chief on Twitter.
In a prompt response, Mr Kejriwal wrote: “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.”
