At the local BJP office, Kamlam, where she reached with her actor husband, Anupam Kher, and BJP affairs in-charge for Chandigarh Aarti Mehra, she found half the gathering raising slogans against her. A section pelted Anupam’s car with stones and eggs, forcing him to leave the venue.
Denied ticket, Jain and Tandon were still out there to welcome Kirron but Dhawan was absent. Interrupting her interaction with workers, a section led by Hallomajra sarpanch JD Gupta demanded that the ticket to “the outsider” be taken back. The chaos went on for an hour.
BJP affairs in-charge for Chandigarh Aarti Mehra tried to get the workers to accept the official candidate.
Reacting to the objection that Kirron was based in Mumbai, Mehra said that after winning, the actress would show everyone how a people’s representative should work.
