Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will soon shift his janata darbar from near his residence in Kaushambi to his office in Delhi Secretariat.

According to officials, the General Administration Department (GAD) has already started preparation for this and the plaza of the secretariat, an open space, will be used for holding the darbar. The chief minister’s open interaction with the people had to begin from Tuesday but after Kejriwal fell ill, it was postponed and a final decision will be taken as soon as he becomes healthy.

Sources further said that a decision on whether this meet will take place every day or twice a week will be decided soon.

“We were informed that the chief minister wants to get in touch with the people regularly near his office. We have already started making the arrangements and chairs and other essential things are being arranged by the department. He had earlier told us that such meetings will take place in the morning at around 9.30 or 10.30 am. But this too is yet to be finalised. Residents will be informed about this by a public notice,” said a senior Delhi government official.

Kejriwal has held many such open meetings with the people from the AAP office at Kaushambi where a number of people including architects, doctors, engineer and contractual staff had met him with their grievances. So far he had held three such meets, two as the CM-designate and one after taking oath as the chief minister.

Health update
Kejriwal did not attend office on Monday as he had taken ill but had a full working day at home as his government made its first major announcement of providing 666 litres of free water to each household per day. “Running 102 fever since (Sunday). Severe loose motions. Sad that I won’t be able to attend office today,” Kejriwal tweeted on Monday.
