Varanasi: Arvind Kejrival 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 Tuesday 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.
Kejriwal  is likely to hold a 'referendum' at a rally seeking people's approval for his decision to challenge Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi from this seat.
The former Delhi Chief Minister had earlier said that his immediate task is to hold the proposed rally in Varanasi and seek people's approval first and then finalize his stand on contesting against Modi.
"Let's see what the people of Varanasi says, as of now we are preparing to ask them and seek their approval for the contest," Kejriwal said.
Further, the AAP chief took a dig on Modi for the latter not being sure about his win from one constituency.
"Why is he (Modi) even thinking of contesting from two seats, an aspiring prime minister should have at least this minimum courage to contest only from one seat," Kejriwal added.
Polling for the Varanasi seat will be held on May 12, four days before votes are counted, in the final round of the nine-phase elections that kick off on April 7.
