BJP youth wing protests outside Bansal’s house

New Delhi, May 6 (IANS) Around 50 activists of the BJP’s youth wing were detained from outside the residence of Railway Minister Pawan Bansal where they had gathered to demand his resignation following his nephew’s arrest for taking bribe from a senior railway officer.

The activists of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) – the youth wing of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) – gathered outside Bansal’s residence at 8, Askoka Road in central Delhi, at about 5.30 p.m. but were restrained by police personnel deployed there.

The protesters managed to break through two barricades, leading Delhi Police to use water canon on them.

“The BJYM will observe ‘Besharam (shameless) Week’ against the UPA for having disgraced the nation,” said BJYM chief Anurag Thakur.

The protestors were taken in a bus to Parliament Street police station.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested Bansal’s nephew, Vijay Singla Saturday with his three associates for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs.90 lakh. The bribe was paid to him here Friday by two people for allegedly getting a senior railway officer, Mahesh Kumar, appointed as a member of the powerful Railway Board.
