Arvind Kejriwal's press conference on Wednesday saw a minor interruption when a man from the audience alleged that the anti-corruption activist and his India Against Corruption group were "fooling the country".

As Kejriwal was addressing the media, alleging a nexus between politicians and industrialists, a man from the audience got up and loudly demanded to know why Kejriwal and his wife, an Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer, never got transferred for 30 years.

Kejriwal is a former IRS officer.

"I want to ask why you and your wife were never transferred out of Delhi," he asked.

The man, who did not identify himself but kept insisting that he was "alone" and not backed by anyone, was immediately surrounded by Kejriwal's supporters.

The man then shouted out loudly that "Kejriwal and company are fooling the country".

Some of his supporters started shouting anti-Kejriwal slogans. They were promptly evicted by IAC supporters.

Kejriwal, resuming his speech, said the interruption was "deliberate and planned".
