Amethi: The anti-graft protest called by social activist Medha Patkar and Magsaysay award winner Sandeep Pandey in support of Anna’s movement for strong Lokpal on Wednesday witnessed ugly scenes in Amethi, Rahul Gandhi's parliamentary constituency.

The peaceful campaign staged in demand for strong Lokpal Bill turned into huge clash between Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) activists and Anna Hazare supporters following Pandey’s speech about the former.

While highlighting the importance of unity and integrity in curbing corruption, Pandey raised question over the integrity of the RSS in maintaining peace and harmony in society, which irked the people leading to chaos.

The situation, however, came under control after the Magsaysay awardee tendered his apology to the RSS activists.
