On Jan 11, 2014, Mr Arvind Kejrwal began what was to be a weekly “janta darbar,” or public hearing, setting up a desk outside the Secretariat and soliciting grievances from the general public.
But thousands of people poured into the space, clambering over barricades trying to reach Kejriwal, and the police, worried that he would be crushed, hustled him back inside. He later appeared on the roof, urging the crowd to go home. Four days later, he announced that he was scrapping the “janta darbar” idea, and would instead be soliciting feedback online.
Six complaints of mobile theft and pockets being picked were received by police from people who went to meet Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at his ‘Janata Darbar’ outside the Secretariat, officials said.”A total of six complaints were received by 2 p.m. including from two journalists and a policemen. The trio lost their mobile phones,” a police officer told IANS. Police said complaints were also received about pick pocketing
