At least 917 have been marked to Manish Sisodia, the newly appointed Education, PWD and Urban Development Minister in the national capital.

Out of total 2,582 complaints, 848 were marked to CM Arvind Kejriwal
"We have received 2,582 complaints which we have categorised according to the departments they are concerned with or the grievances. They will be further categorised on the basis of urgency. We have also got a lot of suggestions," secretary to the Chief Minister, Rajendra Kumar said.
Kejriwal-led AAP government had called the first of its kind Janta Darbar outside the Delhi Secretariat to hear the grievances of the citizens.
Though many complaints were received at the public meeting, it was marred by mismanagement as the venue, meant to cater to only 1,000 people, was bursting at the seams even as 500 Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) personnel and scores of Delhi policemen tried to manage the crowd.
The chaos forced Kejriwal to leave the venue midway as hundreds jostled with each other to register their grievances. Later, the Chief Minister promised better arrangements for the next Janta Darbar.
