KIRAN BEDI REMARK

When asked to comment on Kiran Bedi’s remark that ‘the government not running from rooftops’, the Chief Minister said, “The chaos forced me to leave the venue mid-way as thousands gathered to register their grievances. Addressing people from the roof was the only option to avoid possible stampede. Police sought permission for lathicharge which I denied.”

Kejriwal’s first ‘janata darbar’ on Saturday had a chaotic start after thousands thronged the venue, forcing the AAP leader to leave the scene to avoid a possible stampede.
