Bareilly (UP): Agitated BJP workers on Friday
hurled shoes at the cavalcade of party MP Varun Gandhi after
he allegedly refused to attend a function in Nawabganj tehsil
here.
The BJP MP was scheduled to dedicate to the public Guru
Govind Singh park and Naagpanchami mela chowk, for which
preparations were made by Nawabganj Nagar Palika Parishad,
party sources said here.

Though Gandhi reached Nawabganj he allegedly refused to
attend the pre-scheduled programme, which irked the party
workers, they said.
The workers showed black flags to the MP and hurled shoes

Organiser of the programme and chairman of the Parishad
Kunwar Ravindra Singh Rathore said the programme was fixed by
BJP and the workers got agitated due to Gandhi`s "refusal".
