New Delhi [India], May 9 (ANI): Upping the ante against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal, the Youth wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) staged protest outside the Delhi Chief Minister's residence demanding his resignation. Denouncing Kejriwal and his governance the protestors carrying banners and placards with anti-AAP slogans, marched in front of his residence and demanded the Delhi chief to step down from the coveted post following allegations made by his cabinet minister Kapil Mishra. "We here are demanding Kejriwal's resignation, owing to moral responsibility he should step down from the post of the chief minister," said a protesting worker. The protest took an aggressive turn, as the protestors pushed the barricades in front of the Chief Minister's house and demonstrated belligerently, triggering the security forces deployed at his house to use water cannons to combat the situation.
