The protest came against the backdrop of Congress spokesman Raj Babbar's remark that it is possible to have a full meal for Rs. 12 in Mumbai and that of his colleague Rashid Masood that meals could be had for Rs. 5 in Delhi.
Though Babbar has already expressed regrets over his statement the Congress has distanced itself from Rashid's view.
Sharma said that Congress made mockery of the poor by claiming that poverty had been reduced under the UPA rule.
