"Our officers were with him since morning. When he left the Delhi Secretariat at around 7 P.M., we again offered him security, but he refused to take it," Special Commissioner (Security), JK Sharma, told PTI.
"Our offer for security was there and still stands... but if he is not ready to take security, then what can we do... we think he should take security as the chief minister, it is needed," he added.

Kejriwal has consistently refused to take security cover, either from the Delhi or Ghaziabad police. In keeping with its promise of ending VIP culture in Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party has decided to restrict the use of red beacon on the vehicles of ministers and officials.
The newly-constituted AAP Cabinet also decided that no Personal Security Officer or escort vehicles would be provided to any officials. "Security is to be allowed on the basis of threat perception," the official said.
