Hundreds of Congress workers along with their leaders in Bihar Friday staged a demonstration in Patna as part of the party's 'nation-wide protest' against the decision of the Center to divest CBI Director Alok Verma of his duties and sending him on leave. The demonstrators carried placards reading, 'Save CBI Save Democracy' and raised slogans amid a heavy contingent of police.
We demand the resignation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi: BPCC
The demonstrators, including scores of women, sat on a dharna outside the gate of the CBI office at Bailey Road. "We demand the resignation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
