Arvind KejriwalLucknow: After exposing big-shot politicians and corporate czars allegedly involved in huge corruption cases, India Against corruption (IAC) activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday arrived in Lucknow to hold a protest rally in Congress leader Salman Khurshid’s constituency later in the day.

From here Kejriwal, accompanied by hundreds of IAC activists and local resident, will then lead a car rally proceeding to Kannauj and Kanpur. The IAC rally will culminate in External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid’s Farrukhabad constituency.

Both Kejriwal and the senior Congress politician are not on good terms ever since the former accused the latter of alleged misappropriation of funds through his wife Louise Khurshid’s NGO meant for the differently-abled persons.

Kejriwal’s entry into Khurshid’s bastion has raised political temper in this sleepy town where the supporters of the Congress leader and the enthusiastic IAC activists are ready for a pitched political battle.

While Kejriwal seems dfetermined to renew his battle against Khushid with slogans like ‘who owns Farrukhabad’, the Congress leader has warned against any such move.

Meanwhile, Congress’ district unit, unwilling to give the opposition a walkover, has decide to erect blockades along the route that Kejriwal will take. The Congress workers will wave black flags and block Kejriwal’s attempt to reach the protest site.

Undeterred by the preparations of the Congress workers, IAC activists are busy distributing caps and holding public demonstrations. They are urging local residents to support Kejriwal and make the rally successful.

Kejriwal yesterday attacked Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani of forging a nexus with the UPA and the previous NDA governments to win big contract on gas exploration in KG Basin and concessions at a huge cost to the exchequer.
