FIR against Digvijaya Singh for cycle protest over fuel price hike

BHOPAL: An FIR has been registered against Congress veteran Digvijaya Singh for leading a cycle protest in Bhopal against the fuel price hike without taking permission from the authorities, police said on Thursday.
The 73-year-old Rajya Sabha member and several other Congressmen rode bicycles from Roshanpura square to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhans residence here on Wednesday to protest against the Centre and the state government’s move to hike prices of petrol and diesel.
They were stopped near the Apex Bank on their way to Link Road No. 1 where Chouhan resides, as they had not taken permission for such a large gathering at the time of Covid-19 outbreak, an official from T T Nagar police station said.
