The steep rise in petrol price drew vehement protests today with Samajwadi Party disrupting rail traffic and BJP staging a dharna to register their disapproval against the hike.

Workers of the Samajwadi Yuvjan Sabha, the youth wing of Mulayam Singh Yadav's party, squatted on the tracks blocking the movement of Lucknow-bound Ganga Gomti Express.

The train resumed its journey after nearly an hour when GRP personnel arrived at the spot and chased away the protesters.

Meanwhile, a dharna was organised at the busy civil lines crossing by BJP members, led by former state minister and MLA Narendra Kumar Singh Gaur.
