New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal, who is set to become the chief minister of Delhi, on Tuesday refused chief secretary D M Sapolia's proposal for an official bungalow.

On Monday, Kejriwal refused the high security cover provided by Delhi Police, saying "God is his biggest security".

Additional commissioner of Delhi (security) V Renganathan wrote a letter to Kejriwal saying Delhi Police have been providing 'Z' security cover to the chief minister of Delhi.

"Since Arvind Kejriwal is going to take over as chief minister of Delhi, Delhi Police need to give the security cover to him as per norms," said the letter which was delivered to him by a Delhi Police officials.

Kejriwal, in his reply to Delhi Police, thanked them for their offer but said he doesn't need any security or any escort or personal security officer.
