Officials to meet over the weekend to ensure easy running of Janta Darbar

According to sources, the government has asked the senior officials and their staff to be present to make a blueprint to conduct the Janta Darbar smoothly in the coming days.

Unlike the last tenure of the AAP government, wherein the Darbar was marred with problems of mismanagement and over-crowding, this time, the government wants to make it a well-organised affair. “As head of the Delhi government, Arvind Kejriwal will be holding the Janta Darbar at the AAP’s Kaushambi office, till the time he shifts to his official residence in New Delhi,” added the sources.

“In order to streamline public hearing and to address issues accordingly, a specific day could be earmarked for different kinds of complaints such as Delhi Jal Board (DJB), labour, power and municipal bodies,” said the sources, adding that government representatives may also take complaints through SMS or helpline numbers.

During his earlier stint as the Chief Minister, Kejriwal had held a similar Darbar. However, it was marred by chaos as a large number of people had turned up. The security personnel had to take Kejriwal away from the Darbar venue. “In the forthcoming public meetings, the turnout could be higher as more and more people would become aware of it,” said the sources. The Chief Minister is soon expected to shift to a four-bedroom bungalow in North Delhi’s Civil Lines area.
