Ambedkarnagar: Congress general
secretary Rahul Gandhi`s programme here to flag off ten
`chetna yatras` faced minor hiccups with a lone detractor
showing black flag against price rise.

Before the Congress general secretary could start his
address after flagging off the yatras by handing over party
flag to the respective leaders of the yatras, a lone detractor
showed black flag at the venue to register his protest on
spiralling prices.

It was again after the end of his speech that a voice
of opposition to the Sachchar committee recommendations was
expressed by an Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha activist who
was distributing pamphlets and raising slogans.
Congress workers, however, were quick to control the
detractors on both the occasions to silence the opposition to
their leader.
