BH CORRESPONDENT, New Delhi: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the PMO, their first meeting after the AAP swept the Delhi Assembly polls.
It is believed the two leaders discussed issues relating to the Delhi riots, rehabilitation of those affected and measures being taken in the wake of the global coronavirus crisis.
“I told the PM that we must ensure no such incidents take place in the future,” Kejriwal said after the meeting.
This meeting came a week after riots broke out in Northeast Delhi over the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) between pro and anti-CAA protesters. At least 46 people died and more than 300 people were injured in the communal violence.
Earlier on February 25, Kejriwal had met Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The discussions lasted for over 20 minutes at Shah’s residence at Krishna Menon Marg in New Delhi.
Soon after the meeting, the Delhi chief minister took to Twitter and said, “Met Hon’ble Home Minister Shri Amit Shahji. Had a very good and fruitful meeting. Discussed several issues related to Delhi. Both of us agreed that we will work together for the development of Delhi.”
AAP swept to power in the recent Delhi Assembly polls, winning 62 out of the 70 seats.
