Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will go to Nagpur to attend a 10-day vipassana session in first week of next month. An AAP functionary said the Delhi Chief Minister will be in a meditation centre in Nagpur and will not have access to newspapers, television or any other media.
The CM’s plan to go for vipassana comes nearly one-and-a-half year after he had gone for the same session after hectic campaign for Lok Sabha elections in May 2014.
“Delhi Chief Minister will take a break from work for ten days as he will fly to Nagpur to attend vipassana session from August 1 to August 10 there,” said a senior government official.
His deputy Manish Sisodia will be in charge of the government then. Kejriwal is known to be an ardent practitioner of Vipassana. After a hectic campaign after the Lok Sabha polls in 2014 and Delhi Assembly polls in 2013, the AAP chief had taken a break for practising vipassana.
