The former army chief reached the party office at 6.30 p.m. and met office bearers.

When Gen. V.K. Singh was talking with the party’s Ghaziabad district president Arvind Bharti and Hapur district president Sanjay Tyagi, about a dozen party workers started shouting slogans like “Go back general”, “Ghaziabad needs local workers not paratroopers”.

Some workers barged into the office and roughed up a few leaders, police said.

Police were called in and the situation was soon brought under control.

“Local BJP workers were opposing the former army chief probably at the behest of local applicants. We are investigating the incident,” said Circle Officer Atul Yadav.(IANS)
