Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday refused to accept security cover for himself by Uttar Pradesh police with party leaders saying it was against their ideology.

Upon the direction of home ministry, some officials of the local intelligence unit (LIU) of Ghaziabad police on Wednesday contacted Kejriwal and asked him to opt for the security cover.

"But he refused saying that when the safety of crores of citizens was at stake, how can a leader think of taking it (security cover).

"Also, it is against our party's ideology," party spokesperson and AAP leader Manish Sisodia said.

According to Sisodia, Kejriwal received a call from Ghaziabad police who said they had got a letter from Home Ministry citing a threat to his life and asking police to provide security for him at his residence and party office.

AAP has pledged that, if elected, none of its MLAs, even if one of them were to become chief minister, would take red beacon cars, bungalows or security cover.

Meanwhile, the party on Wednesday issued a list of five probable candidates for the Moti Nagar assembly constituency.

The list features the names of Bimla Singh, Raj Kumar, Rajeev Goel, Kuldeep Singh Channa and former trade union leader, Ashok Kumar.
