Former IPS officer and social activist Kiran Bedi on Monday condemned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for sitting on a dharna outside Rail Bhavan, and said the people voted the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for governing the city and not for breaking the laws.

“He (Kejriwal) has remained an agitator, when he should have been an administrator. I think the habit of agitating hasn’t finished in them. They think that a solution to a problem can only be derived by staging a protest,” Bedi told media here today.

“They don’t realize that only because of their agitation, they were voted to power. Now it was time to run the government. The people have voted for governance, not to break laws,” she added.

“Now, a voter will be having second thoughts. He might be thinking that whether he has voted rightly or not. Whether he voted for governance or agitation? Whether he voted for chaos or order in the state?” she said.

“I guess they are waiting for police to take action against so that they can go to the people and can complain about the police. They might force police to dislocate them from their places,” she added.

Earlier in the day, Kejriwal and other AAP leaders were stopped at Rail Bhavan by the Delhi Police while heading for a protest outside Shinde's office demanding action against Delhi Police today.

Party leader Sanjay Singh made it clear yesterday that AAP will stage the protest if no action is taken against the police officers.

AAP is demanding the suspension of the station house officers (SHO) of Sagarpur and Malviya Nagar police stations and two assistant commissioners of police.
