The AAP government's first 'janta darbar' in Delhi proved a failure as Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had to leave the venue to avoid a stampede- like situation. He later admitted that arrangements were not adequate. The public meeting was arranged outside the Delhi Secretariat where the CM was
supposed to meet the people to know their problems first-hand. The CM had announced that his entire cabinet would sit outside the secretariat to resolve people’s grievances.
But it turned out too many people were eager to meet Kejriwal. The public meeting was severely criticized by former Chief Minister of Delhi, Sheila Dikshit, who slammed the AAP government for holding a "free-for-all" in the name of redressing public grievances.
