Bhubaneswar: A clash ensued between BJP activists and police near Rabindra Mandap here while they were attempting to barge into the State Secretariat after breaking erected barricades today during their protest over farmers' issues.

Members of the saffron party tried to barge into the State Secretariat building to meet Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and when they were restricted by police personnel a minor scuffle took place. Many activists and leaders of the party were arrested following the clash.
