Modi promises help to Kejriwal

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal and assured that the Centre would not discriminate against his government.

Modi took to twitter to announce that he spoke to Kejriwal and assured him “Centre’s complete support” for the capital’s development. Kejriwal, who has decided to take oath on Saturday, has already sought a meeting with the prime minister and the home minister, given the fact that he too is overburdened with high expectations the one sided verdict has unleashed on him.

 With BJP chief Amit Shah busy with his son’s wedding in Ahmedabad, Modi held a meeting of senior leaders to introspect on the humiliating defeat he has faced for the first time since taking over as the prime minister.  The BJP successfully contested Assembly polls in Maharashtra, Jharkhand and Haryana, and emerged as the second largest party in Jammu and Kashmir, all riding on the “Modi wave”. Singh, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari were present at the meeting.

Though some leaders, including state unit chief Satish Upadhyay, expressed their willingness to quit after the debacle, the BJP is waiting for Shah to return to the capital to analyse the humiliating defeat.
