Bonhomie between Kejriwal, Vijender Gupta at iftar
New Delhi: An iftar, hosted by the ruling AAP government, on Monday witnessed a bonhomie between Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Opposition Leader in the Assembly Vijender Gupta with the latter offering a morsel of food to the former as a friendly gesture.
Later talking to the media, Gupta, flanked by Kejriwal, advised the chief minister to avoid the path of confrontation for the welfare of Delhi.
Several Delh cabinet ministers, including Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, AAP MP Sanjay Singh, BJP MLA Om Prakash Sharma and Aam Aadmi Party leaders attended the iftar party.
No senior leaders from the Congress attended the iftar.
After the call for iftar was given, Kejriwal and others got down from the stage and sat in a table for food.
At the table, Gupta, who is critical of Kejrwal and his government, fed a morsel of food to him as a friendly gesture following requests by photo journalists.
"Since the beginning, I have been asking Kejrwal ji to avoid the path of confrontation for the welfare of Delhi. If we work together, it will benefit Delhi. But this is their strategy (to have confrontation)..." Gupta told reporters after the event.
Chief Minister Kejriwal congratulated people on the occasion and said he prays for their prosperity.
