A scuffle broke out on Monday between the workers of National Conference and BJP ahead of Amit Shah's arrival at the border migrant camp in RS Pura forward area of Jammu district.

The NC leader from RS Pura, Taranjeet Singh Tony along with his workers came to the border migrant camp in higher secondary school at RS Pura where Shah was scheduled to meet the migrants and address them at a function.

Tony insisted on putting his point of view before Shah and raise the demands of the border migrants.

However, BJP workers didn't allow him by saying that it was a special function for Shah to meet the border migrants.

Tony made some remarks that it was not a political function of Shah and more so a matter of border migrants, who are facing bullets from Pakistan.

Following his statement, border migrants and the BJP workers booed him and raised anti-National Conference slogans.

Later, police took Tony out of the venue.
