Arvind Kejriwal has support from his counter parts in other states. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, along with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, and Karnataka Chief Minster Kumaraswamy arrived in Delhi and reached the residence of the Delhi Chief Minister.

Andhra Pradesh CM N Chandrababu Naidu said that “We came here to express our support to Delhi CM. The LG has to allow this govt to function. Mamata Ji had asked permission from the LG to see the CM to which there was no response.” He also requested the LG and the Government of India to talk it (the issue) out.

"We are requesting the Lieutenant Governor & govt of India to talk it out

Because of the attitude of Central govt this happened. Centre is restricting the federal system which is a threat to the nation. Everyone is with him (Delhi CM). All the democratic people are with Delhi CM," said Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan after reaching Delhi:

Calling the situation in Delhi a "constitutional crisis", Mamata Banerjee said that "But there should never be such crisis due to which a govt and the common people have to suffer"

She added saying, "There are 2 Crore people in Delhi. The work has been disrupted since 4 months, there can be nothing more unfortunate than this. LG is the appointed leader, if not he then to whom will one to go to seek time & talk?"

Mamata continued explaining, "I wanted to meet Delhi CM but I was told, verbally and not even written, that permission will not be granted. Then four of us wrote to LG for appointment but we were told that he (LG) is not even there. We waited so long but we were not allowed"

Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy said that "We came here to show our support to Delhi CM. We demand that the Prime Minister interferes in this issue & takes necessary steps to solve this problem."

Delhi CM Kejriwal might definitely be happy to see the support he has received from the leaders and chief ministers of other states. Meanwhile, Kejriwal in a video posted on Friday said that he will start a door to door campaign in Delhi from Monday. The national capital is set to witness a number of political storms in the run up to the 2019 General Elections.
