It was a chaotic morning outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residential society as a large number of people from various organisations reached here to meet him and apprise him of their demands.

Police personnel at the spot, both from Delhi and UP, were outnumbered by the visitors. As Arvind Kejriwal could not come down to meet the people due to poor health, the crowd continued to swell and became unmanageable.

Volunteers of the Aam Aadmi Party set up a help desk outside the the residential society to hear their grievances and take note of them.

A delegation of Vocational Teachers Association which claimed that its members have been working since the last 15 years demanded regularisation. There are 748 such teachers working in government schools in the city.

Delegation of Auxiliary Nurse Midwife (ANMs) working in MCD hospitals, dispensaries, personnel working for CATS ambulance and NDMC employees, who are on contract basis, also reached Kejriwal's residence to demand regularisation.

Around 200 activists of All India OBC Reservation Raksha Samiti also staged a protest demanding that Jat community should not get OBC status. They insisted on meeting Chief Minster Arvind Kejriwal.

Later on, senior AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Kumar Vishwas met them and assured them that Kejriwal will meet them once he regains his health.
