Fulfilling his wish, Kejriwal left his Ludhiana hotel and travelled in an auto along with AAP leaders Bhagwant Mann and Harpal Cheema to reach the driver's house. After sharing a meal with Dilip, his wife and kids, Kejriwal, in turn, extended an invitation to the former to visit his home in the national capital. The Delhi CM thanked the family for the 'delicious food' and said that he would love for his family to host them the next time. 

Speaking to news agency ANI, Arvind Kejriwal said, "The dinner was great, it was tasty and the entire family ate with me. I am thankful for the meal. I have now invited his entire family to Delhi to eat with me at my house. I will feel happy to eat with him again. I want my family to meet thier family. They gave me food with their heart, I was touched."

He added, "If my government comes, it will benefit everyone. Autorickshaw workers there consider me their brother. Schools have improved, healthcare has improved, if AAP forms a government in Punjab, there will be further development."

Meanwhile, the auto-rickshaw driver also spoke to ANI and said that his 'dream' had been fulfilled. "I have a lot of feelings today, it was a dream. I felt very happy," he said. His wife who had prepared the meal remarked, "I never thought I will feed the Chief Minister, I am very happy sir came to our house."
