Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday met Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray in Mumbai, days after the Election Commission decision against the latter’s faction. Kejriwal was accompanied by Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann.
“We wanted to meet for a long time. There is no need to say why we wanted to meet. Many other senior leaders from across the country are contacting me lately to meet,” Uddhav Thackeray said, while addressing media along with Kejriwal.
The Delhi chief minister, while praising Uddhav Thackeray for “remarkable work” as CM during the pandemic, said: “I have no hesitation in saying that we from Delhi learnt a lot from Mumbai and Maharashtra.”
“There were many good practices initiated by their (Uddhav’s) government during pandemic which we followed,” Kerjiwal added.
“I wanted to personally meet him for while now. Today, I got the fortune of meeting him, his family, Aaditya. We discussed several topic with each other, including the situation in the country right now,” Kejriwal said, as he went on to narrate the promises made by the BJP, which it failed to fulfill.
