New Delhi: A "Janata Darbar" of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his ministers had a chaotic start Saturday, with the chief minister withdrawing from the scene due to the mad rush. But he promised a better show and soon.

Tens of thousands poured into the open space at the Delhi Secretariat. But the crowds were so overwhelming that Kejriwal retreated to his room in about 45 minutes at the suggestion of Delhi Police.

Later, addressing the crowds from the roof of a single-storey building, Kejriwal said: "We will have another 'Janata Darbar' in four or five days. It will be better organised and better managed."

Three of his ministers -- Somnath Bharti, Rakhi Birla and Saurabh Bhardwaj -- however remained unfazed at their desks, listening to people's grievances and accepting representations from citizens.

Representations meant for the chief minister and his other ministers were also accepted by officials.
