Raipur, May 22: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday added fuel to the fire over the controversial toolkit issue as Chhattisgarh-level demonstration was held to protest against the FIR registered against former Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh for sharing the tweet of BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra.

All the five senior leaders reached Civil Lines Police Station urging their arrest on the issue. BJP leaders raised slogans against the Congress government alleging political patronage in registering case against Dr Raman Singh on the issue. Speaking on the occasion, the BJP MLA Brijmohan Agrawal said that thousands of party workers including him have also retweeted the controversial toolkit share of Sambit Patra and he should also be arrested for the offence.
