New Delhi/IBNS: Winning several hearts, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday accepted a dinner invitation to an auto-rickshaw driver's home.

It was during an interaction with a large group of auto drivers in a hall decked with balloons, Kejriwal ended up accepting a dinner invite.

"I am a big fan of yours. I am an auto-wallah," said a man, taking the microphone during a q & a session.

"Sir, you help auto drivers. Sir, will you come for a meal to this poor auto-wallah's home? I am inviting you from the heart," he said as the rest of the people in the room cheered encouragingly.

Surprising the man, Kejriwal was quick to reply amid loud cheers "Absolutely, tonight?".

"Tonight only," the auto driver said, looking delighted even as he had to prepare for the dignitaries' visit on a very short notice.

Kejriwal then asked: "Can I bring Bhagwant (Mann), (Harpal Singh) Cheema and I? We will all come." His host accepted.

Later, the AAP shared images of the trio having dinner at the man's house.

They even travelled in the auto-rickshaw to the dinner as offered by their host.

In a tweet, Kejriwal earlier assured he would go for the dinner invite, writing: "I was sooo touched when an auto driver invited me for dinner to his house. We will certainly go there for dinner tonite."

After dinner, Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi, "Dilip Tiwari invited us from his heart to his house for dinner today. His family gave us so much love. The food was very tasty. I have invited his family to eat at my home in Delhi."
