New Delhi: Long term critic of PM Narendra Modi, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has surprised everyone by approaching the Prime Minister for some professional advice. The Delhi CM is facing a lot of heat ever since AAP announced its 3 Rajya Sabha members, particularly from his own party member, Kumar Vishwas, who was overlooked in favor of ND Gupta and Sushil Gupta. To resolve the situation, he has now approached PM Modi who has a long experience of dealing with a fellow party member criticizing his every move.

Kejriwal Modi
Sir how to handle our Shatrughan?

Confirming the news, an AAP insider said ,”Well, Kumar Vishwas Ji is obviously unhappy as you can see from his statements since we announced our Rajya Sabha candidates but there is no sign of him leaving the party. Arvind Ji also doesn’t want to expel him from the party and this has created a very awkward situation. As a new party, we don’t have much experience in dealing with such a situation but obviously BJP has similar situation with Shatrughan Sinha Ji criticizing everything BJP leadership does, in fact, Shatrughan Ji goes a step ahead and keeps praising opposition leaders in Bihar making the situation even more awkward and yet, they seem to be handling the situation easily.So no harm in seeking their guidance on this issue.”

When asked about the history of enmity between Kejriwal and Modi, he said ,”In politics, there are no permanent friends and no permanent enemies. Anyway it is not as if we are entering into an alliance with BJP, this is just a young leader seeking guidance from a veteran. Hopefully, Modi Ji will share his expertise on the subject and help us out.”

As per sources, Arvind Kejriwal initially thought about taking advice from BJP President Amit Shah but other AAP leaders were afraid that Amit Shah will make Kejriwal join BJP during the meeting.
