The Aam Aadmi Party protest enters second day in the capital

By on January 21, 2014

On the second day of protest, Arvind Kejriwal remains adamant on his stance and refused to shift the protest venue to Jantar Mantar from Rail Bhawan. Aam Aadmi Party supporters continue to protest despite bitter cold and heavy rain in the capital. Yogendra Yadav said that if necessary the cabinet meeting will also be held on the streets as all cabinet ministers are sitting at the protest site.

Arvind Kejriwal told reporters that the protest is indefinite, and if the central government does not concede to his demands by January 26, then AAP supporters will fill Rajpath with lakhs of AAP supporters. The MHA gives Aam Aadmi Party 24 January deadline to vacate the area.

Attacking the Home Minister, Arvind Kejriwal told CNN IBN news channel reporters “How can Home Minister (Sushil Kumar) Shinde sleep when so many crimes are happening in Delhi? When women are unsafe in the city? We won’t negotiate.”

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said that Sushilkumar Shinde does not have the right to decide where he should sit for protest. “Who is Shinde to tell me where to protest and where not to. I am the chief minister of Delhi and I have the right to decide not Shinde, instead I can decide where Shinde can stay,” Kejriwal told reporters

The Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to hear a public interest litigation (PIL) against Arvind Kejriwal and Somnath Bharti for not maintaining law and order in the capital. Chief Justice P. Sathasivam said he will hear the PIL on Friday. AAP leader Manish Sisodia said that the party will wait for the court verdict on the PIL.

On Monday, Chief Minister along with his six cabinet colleagues and scores of supporters spent the night outside the Rail Bhavan. Arvind Kejriwal slept on the road under the open sky while some of his supporters spent the night singing and raising slogans around a bonfire.
