Delhi Municipal Corporation North confirmed that Lt Governor Najeeb Jung has booked sprawling Ramlila Maidan for the oath-taking ceremony of Aam Aadmi Party Chief Arvind Kejriwal as the Delhi Chief Minister on December 26. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal will become Delhi’s seventh chief minister.

Additional Commissioner of Delhi (Security) V Renganathan wrote a letter to Kejriwal saying Delhi Police have been providing security cover to the Chief Minister of Delhi who is given Z category protectee status.
“Since Mr Arvind Kejriwal is going to take over as Chief Minister of Delhi, Delhi Police need to give the security cover to him as per norms,” said the letter wrote by Additional Commissioner.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal turned down the security cover offered to him, a police officer said. In his letter to Delhi Police, Kejriwal said “Thank you for offering me security. But as I have already informed earlier, I don’t need any security, I don’t need any escort or PSO. God is my biggest security. However, I would be grateful if some help is provided for crowd management or security at a few places where I get mobbed.”
