Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, accompanied by his Cabinet colleague Satyender Jain, on Friday left for Rome to attend the canonisation ceremony of Mother Teresa. Kejriwal, who worked with Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata for a short period in 1992, has often fondly recalled his association with Teresa.

Working with the organisation, founded by the noted missionary, was his first brush with public service, he has said. AAP leader Kumar Vishwas also accompanied Kejriwal. Vishwas clarified that he will be bearing his own expenses.

The Chief Minister will return to the national capital on September 5. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee have also separately left for Rome with their delegations.

In March, Pope Francis had announced that Mother Teresa, who founded the Missionaries of Charity, will be elevated to sainthood after the Church recognised two miracles attributed to her after her death in 1997.
