BJP workers led by the party's Chandigarh president Sanjay Tandon and Haryana chief Subhash Barala participated in the Janaraksha Yatra which started from Sewa Dham.

However, they were stopped at a barricade by the Chandigarh police's personnel near the CPM office in Sector 30 where the march was supposed to conclude.

Police used water cannon to disperse the protesters, who tried to cross the barricade, a official said.

"We were holding a peaceful protest march against the brutal killing of BJP and RSS workers in Kerala. However, the police stopped our protest march near the CPM office," Tandon said.

The BJP claimed that three to four party workers suffered minor injuries.

BJP leaders from Haryana, including minister Krishan Bedi and Panchkula MLA Gian Chand Gupta, and Chandigarh mayor Asha Jaswal also attended the protest, Tandon said.
