Congressmen protested by stopping train on Friday
Notably, Bhuria along with other Congress workers had stopped a train in Bhopal while protesting against Rahul Gandhi's disqualification from Lok Sabha on Friday, which led to this action against him.
Congress workers reached Rani Kamlapati railway station in Bhopal at around 5.30 pm on Friday evening. Here, a moving train going towards Jabalpur was stopped on platform number five. The ruckus lasted for about 15 minutes in which many leaders including Bhuria climbed on top of the engine and shouted slogans.
Later, police took control of the situation.
