A man, who claimed to be a worker of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday disrupted the press conference of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal.

The man named Nachiketa, a resident of Maharashtra, started shouting slogans as soon as the press conference to defend against Anna Hazare's allegations began on Monday evening. Nachiketa, a supporter of Anna Hazare, also threw black ink at AAP leaders during the press conference.

“Anna Hazare Zindabad,” he shouted. 

Anna Hazare had reportedly asked in a letter whether the funds meant for their Lokpal campaign were misused by AAP’s campaign for Delhi Assembly Polls.

Kejriwal had called the press meet to respond.

"I got a letter from Anna Hazare last night. He wrote that a lot of people have complained to him about me," Kejriwal said.

"All Rs. 23 lakh meant for the andolan have been spent during the andolan. Not spent a penny on campaign."
