Sources in the L-G office said the ministers' family members can meet them outside the L-G office as no restriction has been imposed on such meetings. Kejriwal and AAP ministers Manish Sisodia, Gopal Rai and Satyendar Jain have been staying put at the waiting room of the L-G office over their demands, including a direction to IAS officers to end their "strike" and action against those who have struck work.
