Disruption at IAC press conference, man questions why Kejriwal was not transferred

New Delhi: Amid the allegations made by anti-corruption crusader-turned-politicians Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan against Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), there was disruption at the press conference of India Against Corruption (IAC) on Wednesday.

A man, who claimed that he was not from any political party, disrupted the press conference and asked Arvind Kejriwal as to why he and his wife were not transferred for last 20 years during his service as an Indian Revenue Services (IRS) officer. "I want to ask why you and your wife were never transferred out of Delhi," he asked.

The man, who did not identify himself but kept insisting that he was "alone" and not backed by anyone, was immediately surrounded by Kejriwal's supporters. The man then shouted out loudly that "Kejriwal and company are fooling the country". Some of his supporters started shouting anti-Kejriwal slogans. They were promptly evicted by IAC supporters.

Reacting to the question of the man, Kejriwal said he already knew that such kind of thing would take place. He said, "We knew this kind of thing will take place, we are raising voice against big powers…these are expected things." Kejriwal, resuming his speech, said the interruption was "deliberate and planned".
