Naidu was speaking at the launch of 'Swachch Delhi Abhiyan' here, which would be observed in the city from November 22-30, seeking to make it free of garbage and construction debris.

"Our Constitution makers dreamt a federal structure and this (event) is finest example of co-operative federalism, but it should also be cooperative and competitive federalism, so that other states can take a cue from it and deliver the best," Naidu said at the event, adding that a "new beginning has been made in politics".

The Union minister later also handed over a cheque of Rs 96.7 crore to the Delhi government as funds from the Urban Development Ministry, which Kejriwal promptly handed over to the urban local bodies at the event.

The Delhi Chief Minister, speaking earlier, also hailed the event as 'the true spirit of cooperative federalism' and said 'political divisions' should not deter us from acting in public good.

"I am sure, if we can work together, we can solve our problems, and people will appreciate us all," Kejriwal said.
