New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal should not become “enemy” in politics, union Minister of Urban Development Venkaiah Naidu said on Sunday.

“…we need to respect people’s mandate to Modi and Kejriwal and should not become enemies in the politics, but instead focus on development,” Naidu said at the launch of ‘Swachh Delhi Abhiyan’, a campaign for cleaner Delhi.

Speaking at the launch of the campaign here, Kejriwal and Naidu stressed on mutual cooperation between the central government and the Delhi government for better results of the campaign.

On the occasion, Naidu gave away a cheque of Rs.96 crore to the Delhi government, which is intended to be spent on the cleanliness in the city.

Kejriwal said there had been a “lack of political intention” on the issue of cleaning the city.

“We will form an autonomous institution for the Yamuna cleaning, which will have all the powers to address the need. All efforts will be made jointly to fight Delhi’s garbage,” the chief minister said.

Also present on the occasion were the mayors of North, East and South Delhi Municipal Corporations.

Earlier on Monday, Kejriwal launched ‘Swachh Delhi’ app that enables residents to apprise authorities with pictures of garbage, while announcing Swachh Delhi Abhiyan from November 22 to 30.
