Mumbai, 12 September(Wishav Warta):  Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is attending a 10-day Vipassana meditation camp at Igatpuri in Maharashtra, days after the hectic campaigning for the assembly bypolls in Delhi. The Aam Aadmi Party leader started his course at Igatpuri in Nashik district on Monday evening. “Arvindji’s course began at 5pm yesterday,” AAP spokesperson Preeti Sharma Menon said. “The management of the Vipassana centre greeted him with warmth and respect.

He has done 22 Vipassana courses already,” she said. “They (the centre management) requested him to surrender his phone which he did,” the AAP leader said. Kejriwal’s course will end on September 19, she said. During the meditation course, the chief minister of Delhi will not have access to newspapers, televisions or any other media.
