DSGMC members and SAD (Badal) Delhi State activists during a protest against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and AAP leader Ashish Khetan on the issue of comparing party manifesto to Guru Granth Sahib, at his residence in New Delhi .

Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) and members of the Delhi unit of the Shiromani Akali Dal gheraoed the residence of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today in protest against the Aam Aadmi Party’s belittling the Sikh holy book Guru Granth Sahib and Shri Harminder Sahib for “political gains”. 
Under the leadership of the DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK, hundreds of activists held a protest march which started from Chandgiram Akhara in central Delhi’s Civil Lines and ended outside Kejriwal's house. 
The protesters were holding placards, warning Kejriwal against belittling their holy books and holy places. They also burnt effigies of AAP leader Ashish Khetan and Kejriwal. The protesters also crossed two police barricades and when they were trying to cross the third one, the police turned the mouth of the water cannon towards them. 

Following this, a few Akali ministers were also detained. 
GK and the DSGMC chief secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa said that the Sikh community will not tolerate Khetan’s comparison of AAP’s election manifesto with the holy book, Guru Granth Sahib. Sirsa alleged that printing AAP’s symbol over the Harminder Sahib's photograph showed the party’s mindset. 
 Manjinder Singh Sirsa warned Kejriwal to stop anti-Sikh activities.
