Thackeray arrived at the residence of the Delhi chief minister on Monday evening. His son Aaditya Thackeray, and party leaders Sanjay Raut and Priyanka Chaturvedi accompanied him, while AAP Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha was also present on the occasion.
Earlier in the day, West Bengal chief minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee also met Kejriwal at his residence.

Kejriwal is all set to leave for a 10-day vipasana session on 19 December and will be returning on 30 December.
