Workers of the National Students Union of India (NSUI), a congressional student wing, gathered outside the BJP state headquarters, where members of both sides clashed with each other.
NSUI spokesperson Ramesh Bhati said, “We were holding a peaceful demonstration but the young Morcha members were hitting some of our members.”
DCP Manoj Kumar said that some protesters tried to forcibly enter the BJP office and were blocked by the police. He said the situation was under control.
The ‘Bharat Bandh’ call given by peasant organizations has caused mixed reaction in Rajasthan, where the knees were closed but several shops were opened on Tuesday.
The state government has also backed Congress.
