AMRITSAR: Heckled by BJP and Congress workers during his last visit to Punjab by train, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today chose to come by a plane but was again shown black flags by Congress women workers as his convey came out of the airport here.

A large group of Punjab Mahila Congress members led by its president Mamta Dutta protested against the alleged misgovernence by Kejriwal Government in the capital as the Aam Aadmi Party Chief reached here to campaign for the Assembly polls.

After landing at the Sri Guru Ramdas International Airport, Kejriwal straightway headed to Jalandhar where he was scheduled to attend a gathering of the Aggarwal community.

With placards saying 'Kejriwal Go back', Congress activists alleged his MLAs were involved in outraging the modesty of women and the leader of such persons will not be tolerated in Punjab.

Dutta also alleged that she was badly "pushed and manhandled" by a male constable during the protest and she sustained injuries on her face.

Other women Congress activists also alleged that they were pushed and shoved by policemen when they attempted to intercept Kejriwal's cavalcade.

After the incident, Congress activists staged a protest on the middle of road for one hour.

On September 8, Kejriwal was heckled by BJP, Congress and Akali Dal protesters at railway stations both in New Delhi and Ludhiana when he took a Shatabdi express from Delhi to reach Punjab for a four-day tour to boost the party's campaign in the state where polls are due early next year.
