Farrukhabad (UP), Nov 1: Taking the battle to Salman Khurshid's home turf, Arvind Kejriwal today held a rally in this Lok Sabha constituency and asked the voters here not to reelect him for alleged financial irregularities in the trust headed by the Exteral Affairs Minister. 



Arriving nearly four hours late at the rally venue which witnessed scuffles since the morning between Kejriwal supporters and Congressmen since morning, the activist presented some able-bodied people whom he claimed were listed as physically-challenged beneficiaries by the NGO run by the Union Minister and his wife Louise.

“Salman Khurshid had told me you will go to Farrukhabad but how will you comeback? I want to tell him that I am here and will return safely in a few hours,” Kejriwal said to the cheers of his supporters.

Kejriwal said he had accepted Khurshid's challenge by coming here and addressing the rally despite his “warning” not to do so.

Following Kejriwal's threat to stage a protest in his home constituency from November 1, Khurshid had said that “let them come and visit Farrukhabad. But let him also return from Farrukhabad.” Kejriwal had interpreted the comments as a threat to him.
