The AAP members carried placards saying 'Not in My Goa' and 'Go Back Shah.'

Shah, who is on a two-day visit to the coastal state, was in Margao for the opening of the party's office in south Goa along with Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.

"The protest was against the increasing number of lynching in India. We don't want similar things here," a senior AAP leader Pradip Padgaonkar said.

"It was a silent protest against the hate politics of the BJP," he said.

Around 100 protestors were standing opposite South Goa collectorate building, nearly 100 metres away from the venue where Shah arrived with Parrikar.

The protestors who wanted to march to the venue were stopped by the police.
