Kejriwal turns down security cover, CM's house

New Delhi, Dec 24 : Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday refused to take the chief minister's accommodation and again turned down the security cover offered by the Uttar Pradesh Police, said a police officer.

Delhi Police had also tried to provide security to Kejriwal, set to be Delhi's new chief minister, Monday but he did not accept it.

Sources said government officials offered him the chief minister's accommodation but he rejected their offer, saying he was happy in his flat located in the Kaushambi area of Ghaziabad.

Ghaziabad Senior Superintendent of Police Dharmendra Yadav told IANS: "We offered security to Kejriwal today (Tuesday) but he refused to accept it."

Yadav said the Uttar Pradesh Police contacted Kejriwal after receiving a letter from the Delhi Police.

Delhi's Special Commissioner of Police (Security) J.K. Sharma told IANS: "As Kejriwal lives in Kaushambi of Ghaziabad, we cannot provide him security there as per the norms of jurisdiction. So we wrote to the Ghaziabad Police ... to offer security cover to him."

"We are still hoping he will accept security cover. We will again approach him for taking security when he starts residing in Delhi," said Sharma.
