The meeting took place at the residence of the Home Minister around 2.30 pm. It was "courtesy" call, according to sources.
"Met Hon’ble Home Minister Sh Amit Shah ji. Had a very good and fruitful meeting. Discussed several issues related to Delhi. Both of us agreed that we will work together for development of Delhi," tweeted Kejriwal after the meeting.
Kejriwal took oath as the chief minister of the national capital for the third time in a row on Sunday. Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party won 62 seats in the Delhi assembly polls defeating BJP in a campaign led by Shah.
