Agitating under the open sky, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, along with his ministerial colleague Manish Sisodia, was forced to take refuge in his small blue car as the skies opened up Tuesday morning.

As Kejriwal decided to sit in the four wheeler to escape the rain, his personal staff from the Delhi government told PTI that he was unwell.

"Sahab (Kejriwal) has cold and slight fever. He is resting inside the car. Sisodia sahab and Madam (Kejriwal's wife) are also there with him," said one of his staff members.

Monday night, Kejriwal slept on the road under the open sky, while some of his supporters spent the night singing and raising slogans around a bonfire. Some Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers were seen covering themselves with huge vinyl party posters to protect themselves from the rain.

The Rajpath and its adjoining areas offered an interesting spectacle with Republic Day preparations in full swing in one corner while the other corner was brimming with supporters of AAP who were sitting on a dharna outside Rail Bhavan.

Though there was a small crowd in the morning as compared to what it was Monday evening, AAP supporters started thronging the venue gradually and raised slogans against Delhi Police and home minister Sushilkumar Shinde.

Kejriwal along with his ministers, party MLAs and supporters is sitting on a dharna since yesterday demanding action against policemen who refused to carry out a raid on an alleged drug and prostitution racket in south Delhi.

The chief minister had yesterday threatened to continue the stir for 10 more days if his demands were not met.
