New Delhi:

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal may travel to Pakistan next year as he has accepted an invitation to attend the next edition of annual Karachi Literature Festival (KLF).

At an event, KLF director Ameena Saiyid extended an invitation to Kejriwal to grace the festival as guest and the Chief Minister promptly said he will definitely go there.

“I will definitely. We will learn from each other. We will learn from you and you will learn from us,” he said.

Kejriwal was interacting with audience at conference on ‘Coalition, a festival of creativity programme’ at Talkatora Stadium here.

Earlier last month, Bollywood Actor Anupam Kher had claimed that he has been denied visa by Pakistan to attend the Karachi Literature Festival, which had taken place from February 5-6.

The Delhi Chief Minister has not visited any foreign country after coming to power for the second time in February last year.

On Kejriwal’s acceptance of her invitation, Saiyid said she was “very happy” and that all the organisers will look forward to his participation.

“We are very happy that the Delhi Chief Minister has accepted our invitation. Delhi and Karachi have almost the same culture. Both cities have a population of two crore each,” she later told reporters.
