Kher who reached by an afternoon flight, was shown black flags at least at two places enroute, sources said.     

At a couple of places, the disgruntled workers also raised slogans against her. The party has named Kher as the candidate from Chandigarh, ignoring three frontrunners including former MP Satya Pal Jain, Chandigarh BJP president Sanjay Tandon and former Union Minister Harmohan Dhawan.
When Kher's candidature was announced by the party high command on Saturday, there was a revolt in the Chandigarh unit of the BJP, leading to a few resignations by some office bearers of the city unit.
Bansal had earlier downplayed the presence of prominent women - former Miss India Gul Panag (AAP) and actor Kirron Kher (BJP) - in the fray, saying paratroopers cannot do some overnight magic.

Bansal files nomination papers for Chandigarh seat

Former Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal and four-time MP has also filed his nomination papers for the Chandigarh Lok Sabha seat, polling for which will be held on April 10.
Bansal was accompanied by his wife Madhu, son Manish, City Mayor H C Kalyan, some Congress councillors and a few supporters when he reached the office of Deputy Commissioner-cum-Returning Officer here.
Bansal thanked Congress President Sonia Gandhi, party vice president Rahul Gandhi and members of the party's central election committee for reposing faith in him and re-nominating him from Chandigarh. He also thanked the people of Chandigarh for their continued support and added he will not betray their faith.

Bansal is pitted against three prominent women candidates in Chandigarh-- former Miss India and AAP candidate Gul Panag, BJP's actress-turned-politician Kirron Kher and BSP's Jannat Jahan.

Wish Kirron for her political journey, says Anupam

Veteran actor Anupam Kher urged his friends and fans to wish all the best to his wife and actress Kirron Kher for her new journey as the Chandigarh candidate of the BJP for the general elections.

"Kirron-ji starts her political journey from her home town today. She needs your wishes and blessings. Jai Ho," Anupam, who accompanied his wife to Chandigarh, tweeted.
