Earlier, eggs were thrown at Kejriwal’s convoy outside the Kashi Vishwanath Temple here. The incident took place when Kejriwal was exiting the temple after performing prayers ahead of his rally. However, the police personnel deployed on duty denied that any such incident took place.
Earlier in the day, Kejriwal sought divine intervention and visited the Kaal Bhairon, Kashi Vishwanath and the Sankat Mochan Temple.

While Kejriwal was inside the Kashi Vishwanath temple performing 'abhishek' along with his family and fellow party leaders Sanjay Singh and Manish Sisodia, supporters of Narendra Modi raised slogans in support of the Gujarat Chief Minister. AAP supporters also raised pro-Kejriwal slogans.

Kejriwal, who shocked the Congress by unseating it from power in Delhi after 17 years, has said he is willing to contest against Modi. The former Delhi chief minister has, however, made it clear that he would file his nomination papers only after seeking the opinion of people of Varanasi.
