"Sunita Kejriwal will be meeting the chief minister at 12.30 pm. She will be accompanied by Delhi cabinet minister Atishi during the meeting," PTI quoted AAP as saying.

‘What is the fault of Arvind Kejriwal?’

On April 28, Sunita Kejriwal held a roadshow in West Delhi and called Delhi CM "sher (Lion)". She said that he was jailed because he had built schools, provided free electricity and opened Mohalla Clinics in the national capital.

"What is the fault of Arvind Kejriwal? His fault is he gave free electricity, earlier there used to be a lot of power cuts but now we get electricity 24 hours, schools are being made for your students, Mohalla clinics were made and now every month, women will be given 1000. Arvind Kejriwal is a "Sher" (lion)," ANI quoted her as saying.
