Kejriwal adamant, refuses security cover

Ghaziabad, Jan 10 : Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said Friday that he does not want any kind of security cover, adding he has not received any letter on this from the Uttar Pradesh Police.

"I have not received any letter from the UP Police and I don't want to take any kind of security," Kejriwal told IANS.
