Kejriwal refused to take security, AAP had demanded to increase security

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday reached an auto driver’s house to have food in Ahmedabad. Earlier, he had a heated argument with the policemen. Kejriwal was adamant on going to the auto driver’s house in his auto itself, while the policemen did not want to allow him because of the security protocol. During this, Delhi CM and Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal even said that he does not need security. He even said that if anything happens to him, he himself will be responsible for it. However, earlier on August 21 itself, the AAP had demanded protection from the DGP, expressing the possibility of an attack on Arvind Kejriwal in Gujarat.

Actually, Arvind Kejriwal met auto drivers in Ahmedabad on Tuesday. During this, when an auto driver named Vikram called him for dinner at his house, the Delhi CM accepted the invitation. In the evening, sitting in Vikram’s auto, he left for his house. Kejriwal boarded an auto-rickshaw with some leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party. During this, the police personnel and officers posted in his security tried to stop him. But Kejriwal was adamant to go without security in the auto itself. He said that he is going among the public and there is no need for security. Police officers kept citing him for security protocol.

Kejriwal stuck to his point. A police officer then sat beside the auto-rickshaw driver, while two police vehicles were plying with the auto-rickshaw. After this the convoy reached the house of the auto driver. Kejriwal, along with AAP’s Gujarat unit president Gopal Italia and party’s national joint general secretary Isudan Gadhvi, had food sitting on the floor of the auto driver’s house. Kejriwal, who came out after having food, thanked Vikram’s family in a conversation with the media.

AAP has told the danger

On one hand, where Arvind Kejriwal refused to take security, the Aam Aadmi Party had expressed the possibility of attack on him only last month. AAP leaders had gone to the DGP office in Gujarat and threatened to attack Kejriwal and Delhi’s Deputy CM Manish Sisodia. The AAP, led by Gujarat Legal Cell chief Gulab Singh Yadav, reached the office of Gujarat DGP Ashish Bhatia and made an application demanding increased security for both the leaders.
