Delhi government and the Centre have been at loggerheads over a range of issues over the past one year.
In a series of tweets in Hindi, Sisodia thanked Modi for following him on Twitter and urged him to ensure the clearance of bills passed in the last one year by the Delhi Assembly.
“Narendra Modi sir thanks for following. I convey my greetings on Holi. Making a modest request for people in Delhi. All bills passed by Delhi Assembly in past one year are stuck with Home Ministry, please pass them. Delhi shall be thankful for that,” he tweeted.
The message was later retweeted by Kejriwal.
The Chief Minister has around 7.28 million followers on Twitter. Earlier in the day, Kejriwal and Sisodia, celebrated Holi with other ministers, MLAs, party workers and family members.
“Played holi wid my family, volunteers, ministers, MLAs, officers, autowallas n my dear junta. Happy Holi,”
