Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday refused to leave the R K Puram police station where he was detained despite being released by police. However, Kejriwal claimed that he was still being held in detention after he expressed his desire to meet the family of ex-serviceman Ram Singh Grewal who allegedly committed suicide over the OROP issue. “Kejriwal was detained from Lady Hardinge Hospital around 7.45 pm and brought to the RK Puram police station in south District since there was no media or presence of political leaders there. We asked him to go at around 8.45 PM but he didn’t leave the police station,” said police sources.

Sources close to the Chief Minister said that the police initially allowed him to leave but detained him again. “The police allowed us to leave but the chief minister expressed his desire to meet the family of the deceased ex-serviceman. He also told the pilot of the police patrol that he was proceeding to the Connaught Place Police Station, but he was again detained,” a Kejriwal aide said.

Kejriwal tweeted from the police station saying that deputy CM Manish Sisodia, who was detained at Parliament Street police station for close to ten hours and later released, had come to meet him. “Manish reaches here at RK Puram PS where i am still detained,” he tweeted.

Delhi Chief Minister also tweeted, “Modi ji ne jhooth bola ki OROP lagoo ho gya hai. Modi ji sainiko se mafi maange. Aaj Modi ji ke farzi rashtravaad ki pol khul gyi.” (PM Modi lied that the OROP scheme has been implemented. He should apologise to the soldiers. Today the truth of Modi’s fake nationalism has come out.)

      Kejriwal is CM of capital of India this kind of behavior towards CM by police is really shameful ... We all know bjp n congress are just another east India company ... This man is trying so hard to expose this but due to negligible power in hands and wrong strategies projecting him as Fool ... But he is not ... Remember he was IITian and former IRS officer

        Kejriwal is the only Aam Aadmi who understand the pain of Aaam Aadmi. Rest all are thieves.

            The countrymen are now feeling that perhaps an unworthy man was elevated to the most coveted post of the country.

              Did the late soldier's family wanted or asked AK47 alias Kejriwal and Rahul hi alias Pappu to come and visit them at the hospital? It seems our politicians don't understand that the family should allowed to grieve their loss in private and that someone's death should not be used to politicize personal agenda as these two are trying to do keeping their eye on next year's state elections.

              It is very unfortunate to see that police of a state have detained CM, Dy CM and half of the cabinet.

                This man disgrace to mankind. I am 100% sure that Kejriwal doesn't have tiny bit respect for this ex -serviceman
