Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal met Jharkhand's CM Hemant Soren at the latter's official residence in Ranchi.

In a bid to unite the opposition against the ordinance of the central government to control administrative services in Delhi, the state’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal recently met Jharkhand’s Chief Minister Hemant Soren at the latter’s official residence in Ranchi.

After his meeting with Kejriwal, Soren said, “Central Govt speaks of federal structure but acts totally opposite. It is clear today that parties which are not the allies of the Central Govt are facing almost the same situation. It is a matter of concern.”

The Aam Aadmi Party national convener had earlier met Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin to seek support from the DMK leader in his fight against the centre. Kejriwal said that he was assured that DMK will stand by AAP and the people of Delhi.

Kejriwal has so far met West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, former Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray, NCP supremo Sharad Pawar, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and his deputy Tejashwi Yadav.
