Black flags shown to Kejriwal
Black flags were shown to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal by Hindu Kranti Sena in Gujarat on Thursday, said reports.
Amid clashes between AAP and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers in different parts of the country, Kejriwal on Wednesday apologised for the involvement of his party workers in violence across states following his detention and said they should not involved in such activities.
"AAP workers shouldn't have protested today. I regret for it," the former Delhi Chief Minister had told reporters.
"I am lucky that you all love me so much. But we should not protest in this way for mere detention..I am ready to sacrifice my life for the country," he said.
"Don't think about my life. We should not follow the path of violence. No one will protest tomorrow," he said.
He said: "We are not fighting against the BJP or any other party. We have to fight corruption, inflation."
Kejriwal, however, said the Gujarat Police detained him for 'no reason'.
"My car was attacked and windshield broken," he said.
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 Mar 8, Kejriwal will address a public rally at Vijay Chowk area in Bapunagar.
