In his recent endeavours, Kejriwal met with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Shiv Sena (UBT), Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar, and Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPM) leader Sitaram Yechury.
In the upcoming schedule, Kejriwal is scheduled to meet Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Stalin on June 1 and Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on June 2.
With these meetings, Kejriwal aims to garner support from these opposition leaders to address the concerns related to the central government's ordinance specifically pertaining to Delhi.
On Tuesday, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal visited CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury to seek support against the central government's ordinance.
When questioned about the support of Congress, Kejriwal emphasized that the focus should not be on him personally but on the broader issue at hand.
He highlighted that this issue pertains to the disrespect inflicted upon the country's democracy, constitution and the people of Delhi.
Kejriwal delivered a warning to Congress, stating that if the Modi government can introduce such an ordinance in Delhi today, it could happen to any other state tomorrow.
He urged Congress to make a decision regarding whether they stand with Modi or with the people.
Sources suggest that several key issues may figure in these meetings, including the central government's ordinance on transfers of officers in Delhi, recent actions by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Income Tax (IT) department in Delhi and Jharkhand as well as the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Notably, both Kejriwal and Soren have been critical of the BJP-led central government on various fronts. Therefore, this meeting can be seen as an effort to establish a united front against the Modi government.
