Meanwhile, AAP member Adarsh Shastri insisted that Murthy had only paid a courtesy call. This even as an official statement from the Delhi government said the three "discussed several issues of social relevance".

Speaking to media after the meeting, Murthy said, "I went to meet Arvind to introduce Akshaya Patra to him and his colleagues. Patra is an NGO working to implement the Supreme Court-mandated midday meal scheme in government schools."
