There was not much of crowd but then it was first after the second term in office. Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal held a ‘janata darbar’ at Aam Aadmi Party's Kaushambi office in Ghaziabad. He met people for three hours from 9 am to 12 noon.
Kejriwal will hold janata darbar for three days in a week (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) at this Kaushambi office, till the time he shifts to official residence in New Delhi area.
The janata darbar was a much-publicised feature of the AAP government where they had promised to interact directly with the residents of the capital to deliver better and swifter governance.
However, the first janata darbar on January 11, 2014, was chaotic as hundreds had turned up at Delhi Secretariat to get a glimpse of their chief minister. The security personnel had to take Kejriwal away from the sprawling complex.
The Ghaziabad district administration has granted permission to hold meetings thrice a week for an hour at Kejriwal's residence. To handle crowd and provide security during the meeting, a team of police personnel under the supervision of a police inspector will be present. Women police constables will also be deployed during the meeting.
“Arvind Kejriwal can hold his janata darbar every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10am to 11am at his residence. All necessary arrangements have been made to manage traffic and other issues," said local magistrate Kapil Singh.
Meanwhile, the Delhi government will be streamlining the durbar process and plan to fix each day for different kinds of complaints like law, water and power.
