New Delhi: More or less, it's a rare praise as most of the time, AAP and BJP leaders remain at loggerheads with each other.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday praised Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari for support in many areas.

"It was great meeting u sir. Thank u for supporting us in many areas. (sic)," Arvind Kejriwal tweeted

Earlier, in the day, Nitin Gadkari had met Kejriwal and assured that several investments worth Rs 30,000 crores would be done to de congest the NCR region.

Kejriwal had urged Gadkari to back the second phase of the odd-even traffic scheme aimed at battling pollution.

Kejriwal, accompanied by Transport Minister Gopal Rai, also urged Gadkari to extend the date for registration of e-rickshaws by six months. The last date for registration was 31 March.

Gadkari assured "full support" to the Delhi government in the fight against pollution.
