Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal faced a barrage of stones and brickbats thrown at him by over a dozen youth shouting "Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi" slogans near the Banaras Hindu University campus Thursday evening, police and eyewitnesses said.

One unidentified youth was arrested.

Kejriwal was on his door-to-door campaign when the attack took place while he was at the famous Keshav Paan shop at Lanka around 8 p.m.

Keshav Chaurasia, the owner of the paan shop, has been proposed by the BJP to be one of the proposers of Modi when the latter files his nomination. Pappu, the owner of a popular tea stall at Assi, is another proposer. Pappu's tea stall was one of the prominent venues for Modi's famous 'chai pe charcha' programme last month.

Kejriwal made it a point to include Pappu's tea stall and Keshav's paan shop in his public contact programme during which he is inviting questions and suggestions from the public.
