Kejriwal in Mumbai; chaos at station
Chaos broke out at Churchgate railway station in Mumbai on Wednesday as former Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal reached there to board a local train.
TV footage showed AAP supporters damaging metal detectors at the station while daily passengers complained of harassment and inconvenience.
Meanwhile, though Kejriwal said he will travel like an 'aam aadmi' (common man) in a local train, it was a special train arranged for him with no other passenger on board.
Kejriwal on Wednesday visited Mumbai to address several public meetings and campaign for his party for the Lok Sabha elections.
Despite the Mumbai Police providing 'Z' category security to him, on his arrival, Kejriwal took an autorickshaw from the airport to Andheri station, where he boarded a local train to Churchgate.
According to reports, over 150 cops and three Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACPs) have been deployed in South Mumbai where Kejriwal is scheduled to hold two road shows.
