In his letter to Baijal, Kejriwal has said that there are many subjects of public dealing like the police and the Development Authority for which the is directly responsible.

"Most humbly, may I request also to meet public..., without appointment, and hear public grievances? This would be appreciated by everyone and also set an example for all officers that if and chief minister themselves are meeting public, than they should also meet," the letter states.

The chief minister has reportedly warned the officials not meeting members of the public without appointment of disciplinary action.

Recently in a letter to the chief secretary, Kejriwal had asked the top official to issue a strict warning to all officers that violating the instructions in this regard will lead to disciplinary action.

The chief minister in his letter said that he has asked all the ministers and the officials to meet the public without appointment at their respective offices from 10 am to 11 am on all working days.

"This step is being taken to make accessible to the public. In fact, I myself along with all my ministers and MLAs, am also available during this time to meet the public," Kejriwal said in his letter to the LG.
