Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal was detained in Patan district, north Gujarat for alleged violations of the model code of conduct, which came into force after the Election Commission of India announced the polling dates for the upcoming General Elections on Wednesday.
The former Delhi chief minister, who embarked on a four-day tour of Gujarat today morning, was held for organising a road show without prior notice.
Meanwhile, AAP supporters have staged a 'dharna' outside police station where Kejriwal has been kept.
The AAP chief kick-started his tour of the Gujarat Chief Minister's homeland in order to verify BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's "development" claims.
"Gujarat government and the media says there is 'Ramrajya' in this state. (They say) Education has developed, health issues have been resolved, corruption has been finished...So we have come here to see that development in Gujarat," PTI quoted Kejriwal as saying after his arrival at the city airport.
