Pub­lic dar­bar

Southasia - - BRIEFINGS -

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.
