Goa AAP convener Elvis Gomes told reporters that election officials had filed the FIR against Kejriwal under pressure from the BJP-led government.
Asked about steps taken to tackle pollution in Delhi, Kejriwal said it is a very complex problem but the AAP government does not lack the political will to take measures to reduce pollution.
For 20 minutes, Kejriwal sat outside the victim’s house with his ailing father, neighbours and friends and listened to the family’s appeal.
Hazare said he was going to take affidavits from those joining his movement in March that they would not join politics later.
Ankit Saxena was killed in west Delhi’s Khyala area on Thursday night allegedly by the family members of a woman with whom he was in a relationship for three years.
Justice Manmohan also made it clear that the court was allowing Kejriwal’s plea to summon only two documents of February 10, 2003 and April 6, 2003, with which Jaitley can be confronted during his cross-examination.
Most of the deaths were due to infection in the blood, pneumonia and meningitis, the state health department said in a reply to the RTI query.
The government will offer over 40 government services ranging from grant of water connection to marriage certificate at people’s doorstep.
A day after Ankit was stabbed to death, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari had met the victim’s family and criticised Kejriwal’s ‘silence’ over the murder.
With Delhi likely to see three elections — bypolls in 2018, Lok Sabha polls in 2019 and Assembly polls in 2020 — the party’s prime area of focus will be ensuring rapid development in water, sewers and sanitation.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal plans to approach the Supreme Court for a temporary ban on the sealing drive. Over the last week, he has addressed a press conference on the ongoing drive and demanded that the Centre come up with a law to address the problem.
The court expressed displeasure over the state government laying the blame on the corporations’ inaction and asked, “Don’t you have any responsibility?”
After the Budget, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, “I had expected some financial assistance to important infrastructure projects. I’m disappointed that the Centre continues its step-motherly treatment to Delhi.”
Delhi Finance Minister and deputy CM Manish Sisodia lamented the fact that not a single rupee had been increased in the capital’s share in central taxes since 2001-02 and has remained frozen at Rs 325 crore
