Trouble broke out when IAC supporter Archana Sharma was pushed out of the conference hall, where the press conference was being held, by Congress workers while she was trying to ask a question to Scindia, the Union Minister of State for Industries and Commerce.
The Congressmen asked her whether she was a journalist and when she refused to divulge her identity they allegedly pushed her out of the hall branding her as an RSS agent.
While being pushed out, Sharma shouted 'Bharat mata ki joy'. She again raised slogan 'Anna Hazare zindabad, Bharat Mata ki Joy' after coming out of the hall.
Angered by the act of Congress activists, IAC supporters raised slogans against the UPA government for arresting cartoonist Aseem Trivedi and also sought resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on coal blocks allotment.
Infuriated by the slogan shouting, Congress workers then tried to physically remove the protesters from the courtyard of the venue and in the process some anti-corruption protestors had their clothes torn.
Scindia, whose appeal to the Congress workers to allow Sharma to ask her question went in vain, later met the lady outside and heard her demands patiently.
She urged the minister to intervene in the release of the cartoonist, but the latter excused himself by saying that the matter was sub-judice.
Scindia also scolded Congress workers for misbehaving with IAC supporters.
It is high time that congress should understand that whole nation is watching what they are doing.I think they have even forgotten that the power comes and go. Public will give you an answer in 2014 or even earlier.Police is watching and congress people attacking IAC workers. Is this the great indian democracy? Is asking question a crime for which a lady was thrown out of press conference? Congress party was doing a stage show to protect their image and any question exposing them were not acceptable to them.They have made it clear that we will attack people of this country if they raise voice against them.
Wow, the policeman in back ground is happily watching, perhaps he would come in action if the slap was landing on the congress guy. Shame on UPA and shame on people who elect them!!
It is shameful that the Congress party is using the very same British tactics of threat (Aseem case) and violence (as here) to suppress citizens voice! The time has come to throw these goons into political oblivion!
I am sure not even 15% of congress workers understand meaning of doctrine which brought such an up upheaval in the country. They possibly only understand sycophancy and promotion through supporting the ruling families. I think the percentage in BJP will be higher since Rss has an ideological content . I am sure Mr SCINDIA would never have supported he action of workers.
