Kejriwal calls on Prez

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today called on President Pranab Mukherjee to discuss various issues amidst the ongoing political tussle between AAP government and the central government.

According to an official, during the hour-long meeting, Kejriwal apprised Mukherjee about the current situation in Delhi.

Claiming the meeting to be a courtesy call, government spokesperson denied that the issue of rift with Lt Governor Najeeb Jung or the central government was taken up during the meeting between Mukherjee and Kejriwal.
