AAP supporters halted on way to Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit's home
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteers were stopped by police as they headed to Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit's house to deliver lakhs of letters protesting 'inflated water and power bills'.
Police stopped 272 auto-rickshaws at Bhairon Marg near Pragati Maidan in east Delhi carrying AAP volunteers, with Arvind Kejriwal’s supporters walking alongside.
Many of them carried Indian national flags and shouted anti-government slogans. “Delhi Police stopped us on Bhairon Marg near Pragati Maidan. They said they cannot allow so many auto-rickshaws and people to go to the chief minister’s residence.
Police said they would arrange four buses to ferry representatives who will hand over the letters to Dikshit,” said AAP spokesperson Aswathi Muralidharan.
The 272 auto-rickshaws represented the 272 municipal wards in Delhi.
