AAP protests in Delhi over Kejriwal's detention
Angry Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) activists are protesting outside the the Bharatiya Janata Pary (BJP)'s headquarters in New Delhi on Wednesday evening after party supremo Arvind Kejriwal was briefly detained in the western town of Radhanpur in Gujarat.
The activists are protesting to demand a reason from the BJP for detaining AAP leaders in Gujarat.
The AAP activists were seen clashing with the BJP workers in the national capital.
The demonstration was held after Kejriwal was briefly detained by the police in Gujarat earlier in the day.
While, the AAP activists alleged that the Gujarat government played politics to prevent them from holding rallies in the state, Gujarat Police denied detaining Kejriwal and his supporters and said that it was merely checking.
"The Model Code of Conduct is in force. Therefore, you need a permit to hold a rally. We did not detain him. We were merely checking if he had permit," DIG Parikshita Rathore told CNN-IBN.
Kejriwal on Wednesday reached Gujarat on a four-day visit to check development claims made by state CM and BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
He reached the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport in Ahmedabad at around 8:30 am.
On March 8, Kejriwal will address a public rally at Vijay Chowk area in Bapunagar.
