Kolkata: A deranged man on Wednesday attempted
self-immolation during the speech of BJP president Nitin
Gadkari at a party rally here.

Gadkari was towards the end of his speech when the man
jumped in front of the stage and shouting `mera bharat mahan`
before strewing some handwritten papers and dousing himself
with kerosene.

He was immediately caught by volunteers who removed
him from the venue.

Police said the man, identified as Bishnu Chowdhury, a
resident of Hooghly, was deranged.
