Earlier, according to supporters, eggs were thrown at Kejriwal's car outside the Kashi Vishwanath Temple.

The egg-throwing incident occurred when Kejriwal was exiting the temple after offering prayers ahead of his rally in the city, they said. However, the police at the spot denied that any such incident had taken place.

Later, as the road show moved through the narrow lanes of the temple city, it evoked mixed response from the crowd.
