Jalandhar: As the workers of Jalandhar District Youth Congress (Urban) unit held a protest against petrol and diesel price hike and burnt PM Modi’s effigy, a few of them were carrying guns. It was an unusual display of arms by these Congress workers in the city.
Party sources said that these workers were carrying their own licensed arms, but none could explain the reason. Protests by political parties are common enough but except the police gunmen with leaders none carries or at least displays the weapons in the city.
The protest march of the Youth Congress workers started from district Congress office and they burnt PM’s effigy in BMC Chowk. Jalandhar Central MLA Rajinder Beri was also present during this protest.
