Kejriwal works as CM from protest site
Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday discharged his duties as Delhi chief minister by meeting bureaucrats and passing on instructions at the site of a sit-in by his Aam Aadmi Party.
Government officials said that apart from Kejriwal, other ministers also attended to their work at the protest site and sat in their cars to look at files.
"The chief minster disposed of as much as work as he could," an official told IANS.
Kejriwal, who has been defying prohibitory orders and camping near Rail Bhavan, close to parliament since Monday, spent the night under the stars and in blistering cold.
The government is demanding action against some police officers for alleged indifference to complaints made by ministers Somnath Bharti and Rakhi Birla. It also wants control over the Delhi Police.
An official said he brought about 30 files to the protest venue for perusal by Law Minister Bharti.
Officials said they had to get signatures on files and take instructions so that government work continues.
"We can work under the open sky also," an official said.
Kejriwal Monday said work will not suffer because of the protest.
The officials said Kejriwal had attended to work on Monday too, but a cabinet meeting scheduled for Tuesday noon was cancelled.
