    As the sit-in protest of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and three of his cabinet colleagues at Lieutenant Governor (LG) Anil Baijal's house entered the fourth day on Thursday, the Aam Aadmi Party has planned to hold a candlelight march at Raj Ghat to keep the momentum going.

    Kejriwal, along with Manish Sisodia, Satyendar Jain and Gopal Rai, has been staging a sit-in at the L-G's office since Monday, 11 June, to protest against agitating IAS officials and to get an approval for the doorstep ration delivery scheme.

    Extending their support to Kejriwal and company, hundreds of AAP workers and leaders marched to the L-G's house and raised slogans against Anil Baijal - "LG sahab, Delhi Chhodo (LG, quit Delhi)".

    On Wednesday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee appealed to the centre to resolve the problem "immediately".

    "Elected Chief Minister must get due respect. May I appeal to the government of India and the LG to resolve the problem immediately so that people do not suffer", tweeted Banerjee.

    AAP leader Sanjay Singh has also reportedly written to President Ram Nath Kovind, asking for an appointment to discuss the situation in Delhi, reported News18.

    The chief minister had said that he and his colleagues would not leave Baijal's office until their demands were met. The demands include a direction to IAS officers working in the Delhi administration to end their "strike", action against officers who have struck work for "four months" and approval to his government's proposal for doorstep delivery of rations to the poor.
