Youth wing of the Congress party on Thursday staged a unique protest against the ruling BJP at Delhi's Jantar Mantar. With chained hands and mouths, the shirtless protesters demanded the resignations of three top BJP leaders - foreign minister Sushma Swaraj, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. They also showed solidarity for the 25 Congress lawmakers who were suspended by the Speaker from the Lok Sabha on Monday.
