Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal today held a 'Janta Darbar' outside his Kausambhi residence where many people put forward their complaints relating to water and electricity.

Interacting with those present, Kejriwal said, "This is not my win, it is yours.I know that most of you have come here to congratulate me, but I would say this is your win."Lawyers, engineers and students were among those who participated in the durbar.

 Some of the people requested Kejriwal to take up security cover offered by Delhi Police.


"Arvindji, you have become our leader now.You should agree to take security cover being offered by Delhi Police," said Mukesh, a resident of Allahabad.

Besides complaints regarding water and electricity, people also requested that AAP should form a team of lawyers to fight their cases free of cost.

"There are a lot of people who are not able to bear expenditure on legal cases.We demand that AAP should form a team of lawyers who would fight their case at free of cost," said Prakash Singh, a lawyer by profession.

AAP volunteers, who came from Delhi, Rajasthan, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and also one from Russia, participated in Kejriwal's Janta Darbar.

Kejriwal said, "I have heard yours complaints and suggestions and I would definitely work on them.I invite you to participate in the swearing-in ceremony to be held in Ramlila Maidan on Saturday."
