Kejriwal said he would accept the applications of people visiting him for redressal of their grievances only after a system is in place.

I don't want to give you false assurances. I will take the application when we put a system in place to resolve the problems, said the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, which has interests of the common man at the core of its agenda.

He assured the visitors, who gathered in large numbers at his Kaushambi residence for his Janta Darbar, that he needed the support of the people to establish such a system and without their backing, he would not be able resolve issues.

We have just assumed power. It will take us sometime, seven to ten days to put a system in place to resolve your problems, he said, addressing a gathering that included DTC employees and people from the Valmiki community.
