Arvind Kejriwal, his six ministers have said they plan to spend the night at the venue of the 10-day protest that they began today; it will be a security nightmare for the police, which is tasked with securing the area ahead of Republic Day.
Kejriwal believes the Delhi government must be given charge of the city's police force which currently reports to the union government via the Home Ministry. This demand comes after last week's gang-rape of a Danish tourist, and a controversial midnight raid by the Law Minister in a South Delhi neighbourhood.
Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, after the cabinet meeting, met Manmohan Singh and apprised him of the developments and the planned action.
Kejriwal has rejected Shinde's offer that appropriate action will be considered against three Delhi Police cops the CM wants suspended after an inquiry.
He has demanded the immediate suspension of the cops, who he has accused of dereliction of duty.
