Dhar: Days after activists of the
ruling BJP and Opposition Congress clashed in Gwalior, members
of the two parties were again involved in a scuffle on Wednesday.

The incident took place during a programme organised
to lay the foundation stone for a road to be constructed in a
cremation ground at Sardarpur area near here.

The programme began in the presence of local Congress
legislator Pratap Grewal, who has provided money from his MLA
fund for the construction of the road.

Minutes later BJP workers led by Dhar District General
Secretary Vel Singh Bhuria reached the spot and took objection
to the programme.

This triggered a scuffle between the leaders and
workers of the two parties in the presence of local Government
officials and police.

Later, both groups filed complaints against each other
at the Sardarpur Police Station, Aishwarya Shastri, police
station in-charge, told reporters.

There were no reports of injuries in the incident.
Demanding arrest of the Congress MLA, BJP workers
`gheraoed` the police station.

Last week, activists of the BJP and Congress had
clashed at a function in Gwalior in the presence of Madhya
Pradesh BJP President Prabhat Jha.
