Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal is likely to meet Prime Minister Modi on Tuesday afternoon. This will be his second meet since winning the Delhi elections in February this year.
Earlier in June, Kejriwal had complained that Modi had refused to meet him.
Kejriwal is likely to apprise him about the situation in Delhi government and ‘difficulties faced’ by him in running the administration. Among the issues he’s likely to raise are the functioning of anti-corruption branch and his orders being repeatedly declared null and void by the Lieutenant Governor.
He will also complain about the ‘continuous harassment’ both by LG Najeeb Jung and Delhi Police at the ‘behest of the central government.’
Both these leaders were engaged in bitter war of words during Delhi assembly elections with PM Modi even calling the Delhi CM a naxal and someone who only knew how to stage protests on the streets.
Kejriwal and his party have always accused the PM of avenging the humiliating defeats in Delhi elections by causing ‘continuous’ disruptions in his ability to run the government effectively.
More recently, he had renewed his attack against Modi during his recent public meeting with the Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar in Delhi accusing the prime minister of sending paramilitary forces to his secretariat and ‘usurping powers’ of ACB.
However, Modi tried to bury differences and reached out to Kejriwal by wishing the latter on his birthday. While thanking him for his wishes, Kejriwal had informed Modi that he will like to meet him to ‘apprise him’ on the situation in Delhi government.
