New Delhi: BJP activists held a demonstration
at Jantar Mantar on Saturday demanding punishment to those involved
in the `cash-for-vote` scam and attempted to march to the
Parliament House.

BJP leaders present at the demonstration demanded "stern
punishment to the Congressmen" involved in the scam, charging
that action was deliberately not taken in the case as it would
have implicated "high profile" people in the government.

The activists led by BJP state president Vijender Gupta
and other leaders including Navjot Singh Sidhu, Vijay Kumar
Malhotra and Vijay Goel tried to march towards Parliament.

However, they said they were stopped by the police midway
"using force".

The party alleged that Delhi Police was going slow in
this case because Home Minister P Chidambaram wants no action
to be taken in this case.
