Lockdown may be extended with ‘change in work style’

While the parties were near unanimous about extending the lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the concerns of DBT and emphasised the need to work differently to run the economy

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday met Union Home Minister Amit Shah at his residence. This is the first meeting of the two leaders after the Delhi Assembly elections, which lasted for about 20 minutes. Later, Kejriwal tweeted that all the issues of Delhi were discussed during the meeting.

Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, “Met Hon’ble Home Minister Sh Amit Shah ji. Had a very good and fruitful meeting. Discussed several issues related to Delhi. Both of us agreed that we will work together for (the) development of Delhi.”

Later, when asked if there was any discussion with the home minister on the issue of Shaheen Bagh during the meeting, Kejriwal clearly said that there was no discussion on it.

Delhi does not have full state status and many important responsibilities including law and order are under the central government. In the first term of the Kejriwal government, there was a continuous confrontation between the Center and the State Government. However, this time Kejriwal has expressed a desire to follow the path of cooperation.

In the recent assembly election, Home Minister Amit Shah campaigned very aggressively. He tried to corner the Kejriwal government on many issues including Shaheen Bagh. In the elections, the Aam Aadmi Party won 62 out of 70 assembly seats while the BJP had to be satisfied with eight seats.

After winning the election, Kejriwal had said in a speech during the swearing-in ceremony that he wanted to work closely with the central government for the development of Delhi. He also expected blessings from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Kejriwal had said on the occasion to the people, “You may have voted for anyone, but I am the chief minister of all. Even those who vote for AAP, those who vote for BJP, those who vote for Congress.” He said, “Today we have forgiven the opponents who spoke against us during the election campaign.”
