Ahmedabad: In more trouble for Arvind Kejriwal, a FIR has been filed against the ex-Delhi chief minister him and Aam Aadmi Party supporters for not paying toll tax during Gujarat visit.

Gujarat government on Wednesday accused Kejriwal and other party members of not paying the road toll at three places during his tour of the state to verify development claims of Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
Last week, Kejriwal, who toured Gujarat for almost three days and said that Modi`s development claims are not true and there is a lot of corruption in the state.

He also raised questions on the issue of corrupt ministers being included in the Modi government. Naming Babu Bokhiria and Purshottam Solanki, the AAP leader questioned Modi on giving Cabinet berths to minister, who have been convicted in mining scam and fisheries scam respectively.
The FIR comes after Maharashtra police yesterday registered cases against AAP leaders for unlawful Assembly outside the airport and violating other laws.

According to police, hundreds of AAP supporters thronged the airport to welcome and receive Kejriwal in violation of the prohibitory orders enforced in that area.

They were accused of flouting the norms of not carrying more than three passengers as over-enthusiastic AAP activists were seen hanging onto the dozen-odd autorickshaws and subsequently creating traffic jams outside Andheri station.
