A report said that people of Nandan village wanted the Chief Minister to visit the Dalit Basti which led to a disagreement followed by stone pelting.
An official accompanying the chief minister told PTI over phone that some people had hurled stones at the cavalcade but it did not hamper the movement of the carcade.
