Allahabad, Jun 28 (UNI) Demanding better facilities for Amarnath pilgrims, Bajrang Dal activists today condemned Centre's decission of giving subsidy to the Haj pilgrims and burnt effigy of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi in protest.

Under the leadership of Pawan and Sawan Joshi, Bajrang Dal activists congregated in front of Budhha Tajiya mosque and burnt the effigies.

Shouting slogans ''Amarnath Yatra nahi to Haz Yatra bhi nahi,'' the Bajrang Dal leader Mr Pawan said the subsidy given to the Muslim pilgrims is much needed by the Hindu pilgrims.

''All the facilities provided to the Muslim pilgrims should be stopped as the Amarnath Yatri, who reach the shrine battling against all odds, were provided with minimum facilities,'' he alleged.

Minor clash between Bajrang Dal and Muslim group was also reported, however, police swung in action and controlled the mob.
