Following a ruckus with five Delhi police officials on their refusal to comply with the 'directions' of law minister Somnath Bharti, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has been sitting on a dharna since January 20 demanding the suspension of the cops. In addition, Kejriwal has also demanded that the Delhi police be brought under the ambit of the Delhi government and has threatened to take his protest to Rajpath on Republic Day if the centre does not act soon and give in to the party's demands.

Concerns about the security aspect in the capital are also being raised given that the Republic Day is hardly a week away. However, Kejriwal is not very likely to budge soon.
