Police said six Youth Congress workers were arrested and cases registered against them for waving black flags and attempting to block the Minister's way when she arrived here for attending a function.
The workers, who raised slogans 'go back', were protesting her remarks against Congress President Sonia Gandhi, police said.
Joining issue with Sonia Gandhi for her 'theatrics' jibe against Swaraj, Irani had on Friday shot back asking if the Congress president wanted to say that Parliament had become a 'theatre'.
