16 hours on, Kejriwal's protest at LG's office continues
New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal along with his three cabinet colleagues spent the night at Lt Governor Anil Baijal’s office as they continued their sit-in protest on Tuesday.
Kejriwal along with Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and cabinet colleagues Satyendar Jain and Gopal Rai were supplied food from outside, informed sources said.
The four went to the LG’s office on Monday evening at 5.30 p.m. to press their three demands, including a direction to IAS officers to end their strike and to take action against officers who have struck work for four months.
The Chief Minister also demanded approval to his government’s proposal to deliver ration to the poor at their houses.
They decided to stay in Baijal’s office until their demands were accepted. The Raj Niwas had called it a “protest without reason”.
The Chief Minister on Tuesday morning tweeted that his struggle was on.
“My dear Delhiites, Good Morning. The struggle is on,” Kejriwal tweeted.
मेरे प्यारे दिल्लीवासियों।
संघर्ष जारी है। https://t.co/gFWCq0v4pu

In another tweet, he accused the Lt Governor of defending the IAS strike by saying that the officers were working and were not on strike.
As of now, Kejriwal and the ministers don’t have any plans of coming out of Baijal’s office and will continue the strike.
