Manmohan Singh Patna, Sep 11 (IANS) Supporters of India Against Corruption (IAC) Tuesday clashed with Congress workers during a press meeting being held by union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Jyotiraditya Scindia, police said.

Scindia arrived here Tuesday morning here to counter the opposition’s charges on alleged corruption in coal block allocation.

Trouble began when some IAC supporters, including women, tried to disrupt the press conference by asking questions on coal block allocations. “After that, Congress workers asked them to leave but they refused and shouted slogans against the minister and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. This led to a clash with Congress workers,” a police official said.

IAC supporters were dragged out of the posh hotel where the media interaction was being held. They protest outside the hotel, demanding action against Congress workers, who had allegedly assaulted and abused them.
