New Delhi, Dec 24: Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Tuesday congratulated Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal after the latter took a decision to form a government in Delhi with its outside support.

Singh said in a tweet that Kejriwal's success should encourage all those who criticise politics and politicians to participate in electoral politics. Singh also said, according to a PTI report, that the AAP leader would fulfill all promises that he has made to the people of Delhi.

Kejriwal, meanwhile, refused official bungalow after rejecting the Delhi Police's request to take Z-level security. He even said that apart from him, none of his ministers would either live in official bungalows. According to a Hindustan Times report, Kejriwal insisted that his ministers be given smaller government flats.

Kejriwal turned down the police protection offer thrice since October

This is the third time since October that Kejriwal has refused to accept police protection.
AAP member Yogendra Yadav earlier said to the CNN-IBN during a panel discussion that the AAP-led government could take police action against Congress leaders if any cases of corruption are revealed against them.

Kejriwal has reportedly written to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi that the involvement of the previous government of Sheila Dikshit in the Commonwealth Games scam of 2010 will be investigated.
