New Delhi, Dec 23 : Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) architect Arvind Kejriwal, who might become the next Chief Minister of Delhi, on Monday refused the 'Z' category security that was offered to him.


Kejriwal said God is his biggest security.

Replying to a letter by the Additional Commissioner of Police Security, Kejriwal wrote, "Thank you for offering me the security. But as I already informed earlier, I don't need any security. I don't need any escort or PSO. God is my biggest security. However I would be grateful if some help is provided for crowd management at a few places where I get mobbed."

The Delhi Police in its letter to Kejriwal had requested details of the security arrangements that is provided to a Chief Minister.

"The Delhi police has been providing security cover to the Chief Minister of Delhi as the Chief Minister is given 'Z' category protectee status. Since Mr Arvind Kejriwal is going to take over as Chief Minister of Delhi, Delhi Police needs to give the security cover to him as per the norms. Kindly indicate where the security personnel should report to Shri Arvind Kejriwal," Additional Commissioner of Police V Renganathan had written to Kejriwal.

Fifteen days after the Delhi assembly election results were declared, the AAP on Monday said it will form the government with the support of the Congress party in the national capital.

Kejriwal will be taking oath as the chief minister.

After the Political Affairs Committee meeting of the party, Kejriwal said: "I am going to meet Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung to tell him AAP is ready to form the government."

Kejriwal will be sworn in as Delhi CM on Dec 26.

He wants to take oath at Jantar Mantar, the site of his numerous protests.

"I will request Jung to allow me take oath at Jantar Mantar, where we announced formation of AAP a year ago," said Kejriwal.

The just-over-a-year-old party led by Kejriwal emerged as the second biggest outfit with 28 seats, falling only a few seats short of the right wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and allies who managed 32 seats.

The BJP is four short of a majority in the 70-member Delhi assembly. Congress managed only 8 seats.
