Members marched towards the railway junction and attempted to enter the premises. But they were prevented by the police. They raised slogans against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Punjab Chief Minister. Police personnel removed them in vehicles.

Condemning the BJP for politicising the security issue, members of the Congress submitted a petition to the district administration here on Monday.
