Kejriwal vowed to continue to protest till action was taken. The sit-in protest that started around 6 pm in the evening, went on till late in the night.

At around 6 in the morning, Kejriwal tweeted that the L-G had refused the Delhi government’s demands. The tweet read, “Handed him this letter. LG refuses to take action. LG is under a constitutional duty to act. Left wid no option, we have politely told LG that we will not leave till he acts on all points. We have come out of his chamber n sitting in his waiting room.”

He also demanded that the proposal for doorstep delivery of rations should be implemented as it will help people and remove corruption.
The sit-in protest was slammed by the governor who called it another dharna without reason.

“In the meeting, the L-G was threatened by the CM who demanded that the officers should be immediately summoned at Raj Niwas and directions should be given to end the so-called strike’,” the statement by L-G office said.

“In an unprecedented move that betrays little respect and dignity for constitutional offices, CM, deputy CM and the two ministers remained defiant and continued to pressurise that the officers must be immediately summoned to Raj Niwas and the so-called agitation’ be called off, and immediate approval of proposal for doorstep delivery of rations be given.

“In response, it was reiterated by L-G that there is no strike by employees and in his continued interactions with officers, it has been informed that the atmosphere of mistrust and fear continues and no sincere attempts to resolve the differences have been made so far,” it said.

AAP leaders, including Atishi Marlena, sat on a dharna outside the residence and were even seen having their dinners sitting on the road while Kejriwal and Sisodia were waiting inside the L-G’s house.
