Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday offered prayers on the occasion of Chhath Puja in his constituency. He participated in festivities and various programmes organised for Chhath Puja in Lakshmibai Nagar, East Kidwai Nagar, and Kali Bari in his electoral constituency New Delhi, said an official statement.

Jai Chhathi Maiya,” he said in a post on X.
