Modi follows Anna: Skips Kejri’s Oath


New Delhi: After Anna Hazare, it was the turn of Narendra Modi. As part of his ongoing effort to build a working relationship between the Delhi Government and the Centre, Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Chief Minister-designate Arvind Kejriwal called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday morning along with Manish Sisodia who is tipped to be Deputy Chief Minister.

On coming out after the meeting, Sisodia later told reporters that Modi would not be attending the oath ceremony of the Delhi Chief Minister on Saturday. Sisodia also said that Modi assured them that he would look into the demand for Delhi statehood.

Arvind Kejriwal had reached out to senior Union Ministers Venkaiah Naidu and Rajnath Singh for support in fulfilling some of its major poll promises on Wednesday.
