CM begins public meetings at Kaushambi party office

CM begins public meetings at Kaushambi party office
The office was flooded with people who had gathered with their complaints and waited eagerly to personally meet the Chief Minister.

“I will meet the public on three days in the week for an hour,” said the Chief Minister.

“I used to conduct ‘public meetings’ but it was discontinued during the election campaign,” he added.

The public meeting was, however, kept low profile and informal without any publicity. Millennium Post was the first to report on February 13 in its report ‘Power, water, primary agenda; no Janata Darbar at Delhi Secretariat’ about changed format of his previous tenure’s ‘Janata Darbar’ as party agreed to learn lessons from its failure.

The Kaushambi headquarters of the party in Ghaziabad had a different scene as hundreds thronged the first Janata Darbar. The authorities, who had witnessed chaos and mismanagement during a similar programme during his 49-day tenure in Delhi last year, made elaborate security arrangements.

People from various walks of life gathered since early morning as the public meeting was scheduled between 9 am to 11 am. As the district police is providing Z-plus security despite rejection from the newly elected Chief Minister, the entire area was cordoned off by putting barricades on various roads.

The people who had gathered had various kinds of problems.

Few had job-related issues while others had grievances regarding finance. Still others complained of delay in business due to corruption. Water and power related queries also came up in their complaints. “I, along with 50 female home guards were suspended from duty about 18 months back without giving a proper reason. They said that we would be reinstated for the next five years but the promise has not been kept. Shockingly, services of male guards were redressed while the women were barred from rejoining,” said a 29-year-old woman not wishing to be named.

More than two dozen contractual workers of the Jag Pravesh Chandra Hospital met Kejriwal and told him that they had been expelled from their jobs around three months back and demanded to be reinstated.
