Chandigarh: BJP activists Tuesday held a protest here demanding resignation of Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal in the wake of the arrest of his nephew for allegedly taking bribe to get a plum posting for an official.

Heavy police deployment had been made outside the CBI office here, where activists including those from the BJP's youth wing BJYM had gathered to protest.

Some activists also clashed with police while trying to cross the barricades that were put up near the CBI office.

Raising anti-Congress and anti-UPA government slogans, the protesters held party flags and placards saying the Central government has been hit by a number of scams and it has lost the moral right to stay in power.

The local unit of BJP had held similar protests outside Bansal's residence here after his nephew was nabbed by the CBI here last week.
