Protesting against inclusion of Kapil Sibal's name in "corrupt politicians" list released by AAP, scores of Congress activists held a protest outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's official residence on Tilak Lane.

Activists, who mostly belonged to Sibal's constituency -- Chandni Chowk -- gathered outside the CM's house and raised slogans against Arvind Kejriwal.

"Without any evidence, how can he (Arvind Kejriwal) call Kapil Sibal a corrupt leader We have come here to protest against the CM's attitude," said a protester.

Arvind Kejriwal on Friday had drawn a list of "corrupt" politicians against whom AAP has decided to field candidates.

The list included Rahul Gandhi, several UPA ministers, Narendra Modi, SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, BSP chief Mayawati and former BJP president Nitin Gadkari.

Reacting to Arvind Kejriwal's remarks, Union Law Minister Kapil Sibal had said: "I am surprised that he dubbed me as corrupt. I give him two days to hand me the proof of my corruption otherwise he should resign from his position."
