Landing in the western metropolis for his Maharashtra tour, Aam Admi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday boarded an autorickshaw to travel a five-km distance to the Andheri station.

The AAP Chief then boarded the city's lifeline Mumbai local, to travel to Churchgate station in south Mumbai.

Kejriwal passed through AAP leader Mayank Gandhi's constituency on his way to the station. Gandhi is contesting the Lok Sabha polls against Congress MP Gurudas Kamat.

Kejriwal is scheduled to attend a private fund-raising meeting, after which he will start another road show traversing the Mumbai South and Mumbai North East constituencies.

AAP candidates Meera Sanyal, a former banker, and activist Medha Patkar are respectively contesting from the two constituencies.

AAP, contesting its first Lok Sabha elections, is looking at Mumbai as a major target after Delhi, where it formed a government for little less than two months with outside support from the Congress.

The party is also targeting the Maharashtra Assembly elections due later this year.

Kejriwal is also scheduled to attend a fund-raising dinner at a luxury hotel in Nagpur on Thursday, where the price tag is reportedly Rs 10,000 per person.
