New Delhi: The inauguration ceremony of Delhi’s much-awaited Signature Bridge veered out of control after the BJP supporters led by Manoj Tiwari clashed with Aam Aadmi Party workers and police at the site.

The two sides — the BJP and the AAP — got involved in a scuffle after Manoj Tiwari and several BJP supporters reached the inauguration site much before Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who was scheduled to unveil the bridge. Tiwari, in turn, accused AAP legislator Amanatullah Khan and his party workers of manhandling him.He also denied that he had punched anyone. “I was listening to (Delhi CM) Arvind Kejriwal’s speech. I was standing near the inauguration venue and then I was pushed by Khan,” Tiwari told the media.
