New delhi sources stated that prime minister narendra modi, who was invited to Arvind Kejriwal's oath-taking ceremony but couldn't attend, on sunday congratulated the aam aadmi party (AAP) chief on twitter for becoming the chief minister of Delhi. Mr kejriwal, in a swift response, said he wished the PM had attended the event.
Apparently "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," Mr kejriwal tweeted. Mr. kejriwal had invited PM modi the BJP's seven delhi MPs and the eight newly elected bjp MLAs to his swearing-in ceremony but none attended. The prime minister was in his parliamentary constituency varanasi today to inaugurate various projects.
Moreover before the national election last year, Mr kejriwal had targeted PM modi over a host of issues, including for allegedly stalling delhi government's schemes. But after the poll results, which were not in AAP's favour, he largely refrained from making any direct attack and kejriwal, in a swift response, said he wished the PM had attended the event.
