Political fault lines in Delhi took a hit as chief minister Arvind Kejriwal hosted an iftar party, which was attended by Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung, with whom he has been having a running feud.

At one point, Kejriwal, wearing a skull cap, was flanked on one side by Jung, and on the other by Congress leader Sheila Dikshit. Kejriwal and Jung hugged warmly for the cameras.

There has been a tussle between the Kejriwal government and Jung over transfers and postings of senior officials in Delhi.

Kejriwal said there were no "hard feelings" between them and that the "sour relationship" should end to ensure effective governance and development in the national capital.
