Kejriwal announced on Saturday that he will not be moving into the five-bedroom duplex government flat on Bhagwan Das Road here, and instead asked for a smaller house.
"I won`t shift to the five-bedroom duplex flat. I have received lots of messages and phone calls from the people of Delhi and some of my close relatives suggesting me not to accept such a big accommodation," said Kejriwal outside the Constitution Club here before attending AAP`s national executive meeting.
"I want the government to provide a smaller accommodation," said Kejriwal, adding that he will work from his present office-cum-residence located in Kaushambi, near the national capital, till then.
The Delhi Chief Minister has been allotted two five-bedroom duplex flats on Bhagwan Das Road, one of which is to be used as his office.
Questioning the Aam Admi party credentials, his opponents, including the BJP, had attacked him for taking up the flats.
BJP MLAs had yesterday come down hard on Kejriwal in the Delhi Assembly on the issue, saying his decision to accept the two flats was in "total contradiction" of AAP`s claim that it will practice austerity.
