Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener and Delhi Chief Minister designate Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday turned down Ghaziabad SSP’s request for taking security cover.
On Thursday morning, Mr. Kejriwal told Uttar Pradesh Police officials — deployed by SSP Dharmendra Singh outside his house — that he does not need any security and they should go back.
“We came here to provide security to Arvind Kejriwal, but he asked us to leave and said he doesn’t need any security cover,” said a constable, who was deployed by the Ghaziabad SSP outside Mr. Kejriwal’s residence.
The Ghaziabad SSP had deployed five U.P. police personnel outside Mr. Kejriwal’s house for his protection.
“After Mr. Kejriwal turned down our request, SSP has now asked us to come back and we are going back to police line,” the constable added.
