Manmohan Singh New Delhi, Aug 23 (IANS) Charging the Congress and the BJP with looting the country through the allocation of coal blocks, activist and former Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal Thursday asked the people to protest outside the residences of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and BJP president Nitin Gadkari.

“Congress and BJP have got together to loot Rs. 1.86 lakh crore in coal scam. Let us assemble at Jantar Mantar Aug 26 at 10 a.m. and gherao Prime Minister’s and Nitin Gadkari’s residences,” Kejriwal wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.
