Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal should not become "enemy" in politics, said Union Minister of Urban Development Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday.

"We need to respect people's mandate to Modi and Kejriwal, and should not become enemy in the politics, but instead focus on development," said Naidu at the launch of "Swachh Delhi Abhiyan", a campaign for cleaner Delhi.

Speaking at the launch of the campaign in New Delhi, Kejriwal and Naidu stressed on mutual cooperation between the Central government and the Delhi government for better results of the campaign.

On the occasion, Naidu gave away a cheque of Rs 96 crore to the Delhi government, which is intended to be spent on he cleanliness in the city.

Kejriwal said there had been a "lack of political intention" on the issue of cleaning the city.

"We will form an autonomous institution for the Yamuna cleaning, which will have all the powers to address the need. All efforts will be made jointly to fight Delhi's garbage," said the chief minister.

Also present on the occasion were the mayors of North, East and South Delhi Municipal Corporations.

Earlier on Monday, Kejriwal launched the "Swachh Delhi" app that enables residents to apprise authorities with pictures of garbage, while announcing Swachh Delhi Abhiyan from November 22 to 30.
