Arvind Kejriwal denied Denmark visit, speaks to Mayor on video

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today addressed a gathering of mayors at an environment event in Denmark via video-conferencing, days after the centre denied him permission to fly to Copenhagen to speak at the event.

“Addressed the Press at the C40 Summit in Copenhagen, with Mayors of Paris, LA, Copenhagen, Barcelona & Portland over video. Delhi also signs C-40 Clean Air Cities Declaration (signed only by 38 cities of the 94 attending) as its commitment to clean its air,” Kejriwal tweeted today, referring to the cities that have pledged to fight air
pollution.

“I wanted to be here personally but could not do so because of unavoidable circumstances,” Mr Kejriwal said. The CM, who also heads the Aam Aadmi Party, was to be part of an eight-member delegation for the climate summit in the Scandinavian nation.
