Kejriwal hosts Iftar; Pakistan envoy, Jung among attendees

 

New Delhi: Political fault lines in the Indian capital took a hit on Sunday evening as Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal hosted an Iftar party, which was attended by Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung, with whom he has been having a running feud, and old political foe and former chief minister Sheila Dikshit.

Vice President Hamid Ansari, Pakistan’s High Commissioner Abdul Basit, Trinamool Congress’ Rajya Sabha member Derek O’Brien, and Delhi Police chief B.S. Bassi were among those who attended the event hosted at the Palika Services Officers Institute at Nehru Park in Chanakyapuri area.

Janata Dal-United chief Sharad Yadav and party leader K.C. Tyagi were also present.

At one point, Kejriwal, wearing a skull cap, was flanked on one side by Jung, and on the other by Dikshit.

Although Kejriwal and Jung hugged warmly for the cameras, the chief minister, while seated on a sofa, spoke mostly with Dikshit while Jung was seen chatting with Ansari.

There has been a tussle between the Kejriwal government and Jung over transfers and postings of senior officials in Delhi.

When Bassi reached the venue, neither Kejriwal nor Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia rose to greet him and simply made eye contact.

A large number of Muslims from all over the capital flocked to the event hosted by Kejriwal, who is also the chairman of the Urdu Academy.

The only representative from the Bharatiya Janata Party was opposition leader in the Delhi assembly Vijender Gupta.
