Naked protesters in Dispur

A KMSS-sponsored protest against the alleged horse trading in the recent Rajya Sabha polls touched down a new low when six activists of the organization staged a naked dharna in Dispur on Saturday.

But the Dispur policemen guarding the state secretariat detained the protestors on public allegations of nefarious protest that forced hundreds of people on the streets to avoid them.

With a banner, the protesters arrived in Dispur nakedly and started staging dharna forcing the people on the GS Road to avoid the spot.

The peasant body warned of an intensified protest against horse trading in the Rajya Sabha polls where Congress and its coaltion partner BPF won all the three seats.
