New Delhi: As chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and his three ministers sit-in at the L-G office entered the fourth day on Thursday, the AAP attacked lieutenant-governor Anil Baijal, wondering whether he did not have even “four minutes” to meet the protesters, led by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Addressing a press conference here, Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh alleged that nobody was being allowed to meet the chief minister during his sit-in at the L-G Secretariat and asked if he had been arrested.

Mr Kejriwal and his three cabinet colleagues — Manish Sisodia, Gopal Rai and Satyendar Jain — have stayed put at the L-G’s office since Monday evening over their demands, including a direction to IAS officers to end their “strike”.

They also want the L-G to approve the proposal for doorstep delivery of ration. Mr Singh alleged the “strike” by the IAS officers was “at the behest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and under the protection of L-G Anil Baijal”.

“The chief minister has been staging a sit-in at the there (L-G Secretariat). We want to know whether he (Baijal) could not spare four minutes to meet the CM in the past four days,” Mr Singh told reporters.

“I fail to understand as to why nobody is being allowed to meet Mr Kejriwal. His (Mr Kejriwal’s) brother and  I  wanted to meet the chief minister, but permission was denied. Mr Baijal and the Delhi police should make it clear whether he has been put under house arrest or has been arrested,” the Rajya Sabha MP asked.
