Taking a break from his hectic and demanding work conditions, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday arrived in Dharamsala to attend a 10-day meditation course.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader landed at Gaggal airport at 1.10pm and was received by Kangra deputy commissioner Ritesh Chauhan and Dharamshala sub-divisional magistrate Shrawan Manta, besides, AAP leaders from Himachal.

He will stay at Vipassana Centre in Dharamkot. Otherwise known to rake up controversies through his media statements, Kejriwal today chose to stay away from making any remark. “I am here just for meditation,” he said.

Meanwhile, Pawan Sharma, in- charge of Vipassana Centre, said that the course will begin on Tuesday and end on August 11.

No participants will be allowed to use any electronic gadgets, not even newspaper or TV, as the camp rules are about completely cutting oneself from the outside world and finding time to introspect and recharge oneself.
