As the dust and bitterness of Lok Sabha campaign begins to subside, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, today, met Prime Minister Narendra Modi to congratulate the latter for the BJP’s performance; the party managed to sweep Delhi with all seven seats in its kitty while it bettered its 2014 results and got 303 seats this time in the country.
He called on Prime Minister with a request and a promise to work with his government for the betterment of Delhi. That’s not all, he also responded positively to Prime Minister’s ‘Save Water”campaign with a plan of his own.
“Met Sh @narendramodi ji n congratulated him for LS victory,” Kejriwal tweeted, moments after meeting him upon PM’s return from Ranchi- PM was attending an International Yoga Day event there.
In more tweets that followed, the Delhi chief minister revealed that he discussed his government’s plan to harvest Yamuna water for meeting the capital’s growing water needs and sought Centre’s support in this regard.
“Del govt plans to store yamuna water during rainy season. One season’s water sufficient to meet one year’s Delhi’s water needs. Requested Centre’s support.” He said he also invited the PM to visit a mohalla clinic and also a Delhi government school, two of his government’s flagship programmes.
