The AL men raised slogans welcoming Hasina and the BNP men are shouting for her to go away.
New York Police have kept the two groups 300 yards from each other.
The prime minister is heading to New York to attend the 69th General Assembly of the United Nations. She departed from Dhaka on Sunday night and made a stop at Dubai.
