When the crowd booed Advani

A correspondent | April 09, 2006 00:32 IST

Things took a bad turn on the third day of Lal Kishenchand Advani's rath yatra when the Bharatiya Janata Party leader's sound system failed him.

When Advanireached Surat, the final destination for the third day of his yatra, more than 60,000 staunch BJP supporters were waiting for him and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

When Modi addressed the meeting, the sound wasaudible. However, when Advani began to speak he coudn't be heard by the 60,000-strong crowd as the sound system proved faulty.

Most of the crowd was from Saurashtra. As they couldn't hear Advani, they booed him.

They then broke the barricades and rushed forward in order to hear his speech.
