New Delhi, July 27, 2016: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will be travelling to Vatican City in Rome to witness the sainthood ceremony of Mother Teresa. The Roman Catholic nun is to be declared a saint on September 4 by Pope Francis.

Sources in the Delhi chief minister’s office confirmed that Kejriwal received and accepted an invitation for the ceremony from the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata, the organisation founded by Mother Teresa in 1950.

The Delhi chief minister said that he had met Mother Teresa in 1992 and she had asked him to work at Kalighat in Kolkata. Kejriwal worked for Mother Teresa for few months before joining the Indian Revenue Service.

Kejriwal will be joined by West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee who had earlier accepted the invitation to attend the sainthood ceremony.

Earlier in March this year, Pope Francis announced that the Mother would be made a saint in a canonisation ceremony on September 4, the eve of her 19th death anniversary.

    What a lethal COMBO — SUSHMA is also going — LET’s hope they do not SHAME INDIA by making some PRO & ANTI Modi speeches in order to get some media mileage

    Instead of these FAKE gestures by both ARVIND & SUSHMA — LET them really strive to make INDIA TOLERANT
