Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said there was on discussion on Shaheen Bagh during his meeting with Union Minister Amit Shah. Kejriwal met Shah at North Block on Wednesday, three days after taking charge as Delhi Chief Minister,
“Met Hon’ble Home Minister Sh Amit Shah ji. 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 tweeted after the meeting.
This was the first meeting between the two leaders after AAP won the recently concluded Delhi assembly elections with a thumping majority.
Kejriwal, along with his six ministers, took oath on Sunday at a mega ceremony at Ramlila Maidan, which was attended by a huge crowd. He had invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP’s seven Delhi MPs, and the eight newly-elected BJP MLAs to his swearing-in ceremony. While PM Modi was on a visit to his parliamentary constituency Varanasi on that day, the other invitees gave it a miss.
After the Delhi Assembly results, PM Modi took to Twitter to congratulate Kejriwal saying: “I congratulate Shri Arvind Kejriwal on taking oath as Delhi’s CM earlier today. Best wishes to him for a fruitful tenure.”
To this, Kejriwal replied: “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.”
