New Delhi: Dozens of right wing Hindu activists Monday disrupted a press conference of AAP leader Prashant Bhushan here, protesting against his remarks on Kashmir.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader had come with members of the Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) to the Indian Women’s Press Corps (IWPC).
As the conference began activists of Hindu Sena entered the conference room and raised slogans against Bhushan.
Activists were demanding withdrawal of cases against 12 people involved in the attack on the AAP head office in Ghaziabad on January 8 to protest Bhushan’s remarks on army deployment in Jammu and Kashmir.
AAP volunteers guided the man out and closed the main gate of the IWPC. By then, the press conference got disrupted.
Police said they were looking for a complaint from the AAP. Agencies
