Slogan shouting against FM outside BSE
January 22, 2008 15:07 IST
Upset over the stock market meltdown, some investors demonstrated outside the Bombay Stock Exchange to voice their resentment against Finance Minister P Chidambaram.
The investors shouted slogans against Chidambaram, holding him responsible for the crash in the market on Tuesday morning. The BSE Sensex plunged 2,029 points within minutes of opening on Tuesday, hit the lower circuit breaker leading to stoppage of trading for around an hour.
When trading re-opened, the market partially recovered but was still in the red.
"Chidambaram Murdabad," rented the investors. Police dispersed the demonstrators and normalcy restored outside the exchange.
