Chandigarh, September 13: The Punjab Congress on Monday took a swipe at Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal after the latter had dinner at an auto-rickshaw driver's home and travelled in his vehicle in Ahmedabad.

Notably, Arvind Kejriwal accepted an invitation to eat at the home of an auto-rickshaw driver in Ahmedabad on Monday evening. He also travelled in his auto-rickshaw.

When the police stopped Kejriwal, citing security concerns, he said, "I don't need your security. I want to meet people. You are stopping me. Is this a protocol in Gujarat? Why are you not allowing to travel in auto?"

Following Kejriwal's 'high drama' in Gujarat, Punjab Congress leaders slammed Kejriwal for having double Z+ security from Punjab and Delhi and denying security in Gujarat for "political gains".

"I dare @ArvindKejriwal to shed his double Z-Plus security from Delhi & Punjab before refusing security in Gujrat today while visiting an auto rickshaw driver’s home! And how many auto drivers homes has he visited in Delhi without security? Master of theatrics @ArvindKejriwal. Haha," Congress leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira said on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Congress' Pargat Singh said in Hindi, "Kejriwal Ji has two Z+ security, one from Center and another from Punjab. He has so far spent around 1.50 crores on cars and he has kept a Land Cruiser worth 2 crores from the Punjab government. It's funny how he was doing the drama of travelling in auto in Gujarat."

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal is on a two-day visit to Gujarat, campaigning for upcoming Assembly elections.
