Around 200 protestors, shouting “Kejriwal go back” slogans and waving black flags, locked the gate of the venue. There was also a scuffle between Akali Dal leaders and AAP workers after which police had to intervene.

YAD workers were protesting the Malerkotla Quran sacrilege in which AAP MLA Naresh Yadav has been named by the prime accused. A huge posse of police was pressed in for security arrangements.

The road from Bharat Nagar roundabout to the DC office was choked, resulting in harassment for the commuters.

Even during his February visit to Ludhiana, Kejriwal had faced massive protests during which the windshield of his car was also broken.
