Delhi woke up to the activist-turned-politician-turned-Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of the fledgling Aam Aadmi Party sitting on a dharna in the heart of the national capital just a few days ahead of Republic Day. It's not just him, the entire Delhi cabinet along with several hundred supporters were stopped while they were en route to the Home Ministry to demand control of the Delhi Police in order to meet a key demand of their party manifesto. The move was also aimed at holding Delhi Police accountable to the people of Delhi, especially in the face of criticism against the party of parroting the Congress line when faced with questions of crimes in the capital. But in the unprecedented faceoff with the Home Ministry, Mr Kejriwal calling himself an anarchist brought part of the national capital to a halt. Many are criticising the manner in which the Delhi chief minister took law and order into his own hands and are asking how someone like him can be trusted with the control of the police in the national capital.
