Chhattisgarh Congress chief Bhupesh Baghel addressed party workers at Gandhi Maidan in Raipur earlier.

"Every department in Raman Singh government is riddled with corruption. Commission is taken by the ruling party for every work," Baghel alleged.

"We wanted to present these facts before BJP national president Amit Shah who is on three-day visit here, but we were stopped," Baghel said.

Congress workers later marched towards CM's official bungalow, but were stopped by police near Akashvani Chowk.

Baghel, leader of opposition in Assembly, TS Singhdeo and some 200 workers were arrested. They were released later, Superintendent of Police Sanjeev Shukla told PTI.
