After Meeting With PM Modi, Arvind Kejriwal Strikes An Amiable Tone 

New Delhi: The leader of Aam Aadmi Party and Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal on Friday met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This was the two leader's first encounter after the national elections, promising to work with the central government and seeking help to develop the capital city. The Chief Minister of National Capital which was decimated by the BJP in the Lok Sabha polls last month, voiced an uncharacteristically conciliatory tone following the meeting in parliament.

"Met Shri Narendra Modi and congratulated him for Lok Sabha victory," he said. He said he requested centre's support for harvesting Yamuna river's water during the monsoon as one season's water was "sufficient to meet one year's needs". The AAP cheif also said he had invited the Prime Minister to visit a "Mohalla Clinic" - the primary medical centres at centre of AAP's highly-praised healthcare policy.


"Ayushman Bharat (the centre's medical insurance scheme) was briefly discussed. Informed honourable PM that Delhi government Delhi Health scheme is much bigger and wider in scope. However, assured him to examine if Ayushman Bharat scheme could also be integrated into our scheme," he tweeted.

The 50 year old Arvind Kejriwal and his AAP have been one of the harshest opponents of the Prime Minister and the BJP with their animosity peaking during the Lok Sabha elections that ended last month. The Bhartiya Janata Party swept away all seven of the parliamentary seats in Delhi. This result was humiliating for Mr Kejriwal, who rules the city state with one of the biggest majorities anywhere in the country.

The BJP has been accused by the Aam Aadmi Party of everything from throttling the capital's development to sponsoring physical assaults on Arvind Kejriwal and even plotting his assassination. The Chief Minister had called PM Modi a "coward and a psychopath," after a raid on his office by the CBI in 2015.

The Aam Aadmi Party fought the Lok Sabha elections with the near-exclusive agenda of stopping PM Modi's re-election, saying the Prime Minister and BJP chief Amit Shah were against harmony between state and the central administrations and would change the constitution of the country to make it more autocratic.
