Bhopal, July 15 (ANI): Police baton charged hundreds of Congress party protesting workers who were trying to lay a siege on the State Legislative Assembly.

The protestors blamed the Madhya Pradesh government for being inefficient in fighting crime, corruption, and solving electricity and water woes of the general public.

The protestors included members of the youth and women wing of the Congress party, who raised slogans criticising the State Government.

Police used tear gas shells to disperse the Congress workers when they tried to invade the State Legislative Assembly and turned violent.

However, the protestors claimed that they were carrying out a peaceful demonstration.

"We were protesting silently in spite of which we were baton charged. Women and young men have been injured in the baton charge. The injured have to be taken to the hospital," said Premchand Guddu, Member of Parliament and Congress leader.

Hundreds of Congress party workers were later arrested from the venue of protest. The two badly injured were rushed to nearby hospital for medical attention. (ANI)
