With little left to the imagination over who will emerge victorious in the Delhi elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal to congratulate him on his party's stellar performance in the capital.
Modi even took to Twitter to announce to nearly ten million followers about his call to Kejriwal.
"Spoke to @ArvindKejriwal & congratulated him on the win. Assured him Centre's complete support in the development of Delhi," Modi tweeted.
Kejriwal also reportedly asked the prime minister for a meeting, and Modi has given a nod to the date, inviting him for tea, probably referring to his famous 'Chai pe Charcha' slogan.
"Yes, we will meet for tea," the PM reportedly said, according to some reports.
Spoke to @ArvindKejriwal & congratulated him on the win. Assured him Centre's complete support in the development of Delhi.

It is, however, too soon to forget that it was Modi who had left Kejriwal red-faced just ten months ago after beating him with a massive margin form the Varanasi constituency in the general elections.
However, the Delhi election results may have now turned the tables on Modi, given that his presence in the party's campaigning did not change much for the party's fortunes in terms of votes.
Modi had urged Delhi's youth to vote in large numbers when the state went to polls on 7 February.
As Delhi votes today, urging voters to go out & vote in large numbers. I particularly call upon my young friends to vote in record numbers.
