Varanasi: Congress leader Digvijay Singh today
faced the wrath of BJP workers protesting against price hike
while he was waiting to board a Delhi-bound train at
Mugalsarai railway station near here.

Tempers ran high as BJP workers, who were holding black
flags, clashed with Congress activists as they tried to enter
the waiting room at the station, where Singh was sitting,
sources said here.

Singh, who had reached here from Ghazipur, was waiting to
board Rajdhani express for New Delhi. There were heated
arguments and scuffle between BJP activists, who were shouting
anti-Congress slogans over price rise, and Congress workers,
they said.

However, sources said that none of the protesters could
reach Singh.

Later, the AICC general secreatray told reporters, "What
else can these (BJP ) men with black hearts do except showing
flags".

Earlier at a public meeting in Ghazipur, Singh accused the
BJP of doing nothing to root corruption when it was in power
and said the party was enacting a "drama" after some states
ruled by it were ridden by scams.

Lashing out at L K Advani, he said before starting his
rath yatra against corruption the BJP leader should have
looked at things within his party.
