When Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi arrived on a two-day visit to the state Tuesday afternoon, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker was injured in clashes between supporters of the two parties, police said.
The Congress workers protested and both parties clashed. One BJP worker was hit with a stick, police said.
The BJP workers appeared at Birsa roundabout when Gandhi was garlanding freedom fighter Birsa Munda’s statue.
The Congress MP will visit Bokaro Wednesday to participate in a party programme.
