The motorcade of AAP leaders were stopped and checked near Gauriganj when Kejriwal and his colleagues were holding road-shows in the support of party nominee from Amethi Kumar Vishwas on the first day in Amethi and Gauriganj Assembly segments, party sources said.

According to Circle Officer, Navin K Singh, the road-show was stopped briefly as AAP leaders were addressing people in the middle of the road, thus blocking traffic on the high way.

"One of the vehicle in road-show was fined as the concerned vehicle was not having proper papers related to pollution, commercial certificate etc," said Singh.

The road-show was stopped and challan was issued in the presence of Sub Divisional Magistrate of Gauriganj and Additional SP of Amethi Munna Lal.
