New Delhi/Ludhiana: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was today heckled by activists from BJP, its ally Akali Dal and Congress, who staged protests at railway stations over allegations of misconduct against AAP leaders, as he started his four-day visit to Punjab to give a push to the party's poll campaign in the state.
Activists led by Delhi BJP women's wing president Kamaljeet Sehrawat and party spokesman Praveen Kapoor raised slogans and waved bangles towards Kejriwal, who arrived at platform number 1 at New Delhi railway station to board a train for Punjab at around 7 AM.
Some protesters jostled with the policemen and Kejriwal was caught in the melee. They demanded that Kejriwal speak on the alleged "misconduct" of his MLAs and expel Ashutosh for his controversial blog defending Sandeep Kumar, who was sacked as minister over an alleged sex scandal.
Blaming Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Delhi Police for the alleged manhandling of the Chief Minister at the hands of women protesters of the BJP, the Aam Aadmi Party said the law enforcement agency was a "mute spectator" during the "pre-planned" episode.
BJP, however, denied any manhandling and said party activists resorted to political protest.
"It is sad and shameful that the those who once talked of daily dialogue with people today term political protest as an attack," Kapoor said.
