BJP workers protest fuel hike; halt trains

Written by: Staff

Ahmedabad, June 7 (UNI) BJP workers led by Gujarat unit president Vajubhai Vala and city Mayor Amit Shah blocked the rail-traffic at the Kalupur railway station as a part of the party's nationwide agitation call given to protest the recent hike in petrol and diesel prices by the Congress-led UPA Government.

About 600-700 BJP volunteers carrying posters and banners and demanding the withdrawal of the price hike on petrol and diesel, halted the Jammu Tawi Express and an inter-city train by pulling chain and thronging railway tracks.

Mr Vala also made a short speech before the workers, criticising the Central Government for its irrational and anti-poor policies.

They shouted anti-Congress and anti-UPA slogans condemning the anti-poor policy of the Centre.

The entire demonstration lasted for almost an hour before the BJP workers dispersed from the tracks.

Later, the rail traffic resumed normally.
