New Delhi: Spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said on Tuesday that Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal should not refuse the security offered to him.

Sri Sri wrote on the micro-blogging site Twitter - “Arvind should strike a balance between idealism and pragmatism. He is not a sanyasi. As a head of a state, he should keep minimum security.”

He also said, “We are not yet a Ram Rajya. One should not be a soft target for criminals. Even Gods carry weapons. Only Rushi-Munis don`t.”

Kejriwal, who is all set to be the CM of Delhi, after taking support from the Congress, today once again refused to accept the security cover offered by Uttar Pradesh Police.

Senior Superintendent of Police of Ghaziabad, Dharmendra Yadav, today met Kejriwal at his residence after he received a letter from security branch of Delhi Police to provide security cover to him.

Yesterday, Kejriwal had refused to accept the `Z` security cover, which he is entitled to as the CM of Delhi, by the Delhi Police.

Kejriwal had been saying that he or his party MLAs would not take security cover, bunglow or cars fitted with red beacon after coming to power. He terms them as part of VIP culture which he had vowed to eradicate.
