Mahila Congress workers staged a protest in Jalandhar on Sunday, ahead of Aam Aadmi Party supremo and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s visit to the city.

The Congress women workers, about 50 in number, raised black flags and raised “Kerjiwal go back” slogans outside the Victoria Palace in Jalandhar. Placards that read “Delhi ko barbad kiya... Punjab nahi (You have ruined Delhi... Not Punjab)” were also waived.

One of the placards also read “Anti aurt parti” (sic).

A similar protest was seen near the Amritsar airport where Kejriwal landed on Sunday. Here too, Mahila Congress workers, led by Punjab Mahila Congress president Mamta Dutta, waived black flags and shouted “Kejriwal go back” slogans.

Kejriwal will now travel from Amritsar to Jalandhar where he is scheduled to attend Aggarwal community gathering as the chief guest.

The AAP supremo has been frequently visiting Punjab, where assembly elections are to be held early next year, in the last few months.
