Transport Minister Madan Mitra's car was stopped by CPM supporters at Hazra crossing in Kolkata. Police sources said the strike enforcers gheraoed the minister's car and hurled abuses at him. An unruffled Mitra got down from his car and asked the CPM supporters why they were blocking the road and making it difficult for people to reach hospitals. Police intervened and cleared the road for the minister.
