Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday faced protests allegedly by BJP workers after he arrived here to kickstart his campaign against Narendra Modi.

Kejriwal, who arrived here by Shivganga express train, faced an angry mob of BJP workers at different points in the town shouting slogans of "Kejriwal vapas jao" and "Kejriwal murdabad".

The AAP leader arrived here today morning with around 50 workers and is scheduled to address a rally later in the day to ask the people of the constituency whether he should take on BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi who is contesting from this seat.

He first faced opposition by the BJP workers at Tagore town colony in Bhojubir locality where he halted at a party worker's residence and later faced similar opposition at Baba Kal Bhairon temple in Vishesehwarganj locality.

The AAP workers retaliated by raising anti-Modi slogans, a party official said.
