Kejriwal met PM Modi to thrash out issues of governance which have pitted the Aam Aadmi Party government against Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, an appointee of the Central government.

"It seems Delhi Police is at war with the Delhi government," Kejriwal said, adding, "This is harmful for democracy."

In obvious reference to Jung, he said whenever his government took out orders, they were declared null and void.

He pointed out that Modi himself had been a Chief Minister in Gujarat and demanded to know how many times he had faced this problem from the state Governor even when the Congress was in power at the Centre.

"The Prime Minister should cooperate with us," Kejriwal said, saying his government would make Modi's Swachh Bharat and Digital India campaigns a success in Delhi.

"In two years, we will make Delhi a shining city if such cooperation is available,” he added.

Kejriwal said Modi heard him out carefully and promised to look into the issues he had raised.
