New Delhi: In a sign of growing bonhomie between the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Delhi chief minister and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal travelled to Kolkata on Thursday to address the Global Business Summit organized by the West Bengal government.

This is the Delhi CM’s first visit to the state, which goes to the polls later this year.

Kejriwal is in Kolkata after being invited by the West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee.

“The Delhi chief minister left for Kolkata to attend the summit and he will come back by tomorrow evening," a senior government official said on Thursday.

Since Arvind Kejriwal’s election in February, the two parties have been seen coming out in support of each other especially in the case of his government’s turf war with the central government.

Kejriwal’s visit comes after the West Bengal CM travelled to Delhi to attend the conference on cooperative federalism organised by the AAP government in September 2015.

Kejriwal had also received support from Banerjee in December 2015 when the Delhi Secretariat was raided by the Central Bureau of Investigation. Members of the TMC raised the issue in the Rajya Sabha, a house where the AAP has no members.
