New Delhi: It was high drama outside senior
BJP leader Arun Jaitley`s residence here on Tuesday when a
40-year-old party worker threatened to set himself on fire
alleging that there was too much politics in the party.

The incident was reported at around 11 am at the
9-Ashoka Road residence of Jaitley.

Subhash Goyal, a resident of Jwala Nagar in east Delhi,
came to Jaitley`s residence with a can of kerosene and
threatened to set himself on fire.

However, a security guard posted there, prevented Goyal
from pouring kerosene on his body or lighting a match stick.

He was taken to Parliament Street police station and
later let off.
