Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal joined activist Anna Hazare at Jantar Mantar on Tuesday in the protest against the Modi government’s land Ordinance.
This is for the first time Anna and Kejriwal are seen together after parting ways three years back when Kejriwal decided to indulge into active politics and formed Aam Aadmi Party. Hazare had refused to support Kejriwal’s political ambitions.
Also, this is Kejriwal’s first protest after becoming the chief minister of Delhi.
