Coimbatore, Mar 29 (UNI) As much as 167 BJP workers, including six women, were arrested here this evening when they resorted to black flag demonstration and ''road roko'' against Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan and his West Bengal counterpart Buddhadev Bhattacharya, who were here for the CPI(M) Congress.
Police said the workers shouted slogans protesting the death of RSS workers at Kannur and atrocities on farmers at Nandigram in West Bengal.
The agitators were led by BJP District President A Balakrishnan.
The agitation was in retaliation to the demonstration by the Communist party workers against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to the city some months ago.
