Several Delh cabinet ministers, including Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, AAP MP Sanjay Singh, BJP MLA Om Prakash Sharma and Aam Aadmi Party leaders attended the iftar party.
No senior leaders from the Congress attended the iftar.
After the call for iftar was given, Kejriwal and others got down from the stage and sat in a table for food.
At the table, Gupta, who is critical of Kejrwal and his government, fed a morsel of food to him as a friendly gesture following requests by photo journalists.
"Since the beginning, I have been asking Kejrwal ji to avoid the path of confrontation for the welfare of Delhi. If we work together, it will benefit Delhi. But this is their strategy (to have confrontation)..." Gupta told reporters after the event.
Kejriwal congratulated people on the occasion and said he prays for their prosperity.(This story has not been edited by News18 staff and is published from a syndicated news agency feed)
