New Delhi: Battling dissidence and allegations of sleaze and corruption against his MLAs, Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday arrived in Punjab to give a fresh push to AAP’s assembly poll campaign amid heckling by the rivals.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was heckled by activists from BJP, its ally Akali Dal and Congress, who staged protests at the railway stations. Questioning his silence over expelled MLA Sandeep Kumar, activists of BJP’s Mahila Morcha staged a protest against Kejriwal at the New Delhi railway station, with the Aam Aadmi Party alleging that the Chief Minister was manhandled during the “pre-planned” protest.

 

Later, as Kejriwal got down from the Delhi-Ludhiana-Amritsar Shatabdi Express at the Ludhiana railway station, he was again greeted with protesters from the ruling SAD’s youth wing and opposition Congress’ women’s wing.

Youth Akali Dal leader Gurpreet Singh Gosha led by other party activists tried to give bangles to Kejriwal, claiming his government had failed on all fronts. Congress women wing's Ludhiana district president Leena Tapria, who also led a group of party activists, raised slogans like “Kejriwal Go Back”.
