New Delhi, Oct 14: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday, Oct 13 faced angry protest for the second consecutive day when a group of people showed black flags to her at a public function in East Delhi resenting the rise in power tariffs.

The protesters also threw eggs towards the dais where Dikshit was sitting at the function in Mustafabad area of East Delhi.

The protesters shouted slogans against Dikshit and also showed black flags criticising the hike in power tariff. Yesterday also, the Delhi Chief Minister was booed and a slipper was hurled at her at a public function in North East Delhi by a group of India Against Corruption activists, protesting price rise and stiff hike in power tariff.

The slipper fell well short of Dikshit who had gone to Nand Nagri to inaugurate two renovated circle offices of Food and Supplies department and she continued with the proceedings after the incident.
