Arvind Kejriwal says no need, but gets Z-category security

New Delhi/Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh), Jan 13 : Fourteen police personnel have been deployed to protect Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal after the Uttar Pradesh government approved Z-category security cover for him.

The Delhi chief minister resides in Uttar Pradesh, in an apartment at Girnar Tower at Kaushambi in Ghaziabad.

The chief minister, however, continued to maintain that he has no need for security.

"We have deployed two personal security officers (PSOs) of sub-inspector rank, who are assisted by eight security guards. An escort vehicle, consisting of four security personnel, headed by a head constable, has also been provided by Ghaziabad police," Circle Officer Kamlesh Bahadur of the Local Intelligence Unit (LIU) said.

However, the Delhi chief minister said: "As long as the "aam aadmi" of the country have no security, I too do not require it. I have said numerous times that I do not require security of either Delhi or Uttar Pradesh Police."

Ghaziabad police also deployed five men at the Aam Aadmi Party office in Kaushambi after Hindu Raksha Dal activists attacked it Jan 8, 2014, the circle officer said.
