Farmers protest: Scindia arrested enroute to Mandsaur

Gujarat's Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel, who was detained by the police when he was heading to Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh to meet family members of those killed in the police firing during a farmers' agitation, has been released. "But this (Section 144) makes it clear there is no peace there and (Shivraj Singh) Chouhan's fast was a pretence", he added.

"All rules are being torn to shreds". Both the Congress leaders were taken in a Vajra vehicle to Jaora town, where they were formally arrested by the police.

Patel, who has been trying to carve out a political space for himself in Gujarat, also criticised the Narendra Modi government and claimed 50 crore farmers have come together against the BJP.

Lashing out on authorities after his arrest, Hardik Patel said, "I am not a terrorist".

Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Bhupendra Singh on Tuesday said farmers' suicides in the state are a result of family disputes and not because of debt in agriculture. "I am an Indian citizen and have the right to go anywhere in the country".

Patel was detained in Madhya Pradesh's Neemuch district while en route to Mandsaur to meet the kin of farmers' killed in police firing during an agitation.




"Independent persons and agencies are denied entry while the full might of the state appears to be influencing and torturing witnesses to the murder of farmers by police, causing disappearance of material evidence and running an extortion racket by intimidation", a statement issued by the delegation members said.

Swaraj India President Yogendra Yadav said since the last week, the government did not allow any political leader or activist to visit Mandsaur and meet the kin of the farmers.

While two allegedly debt-ridden farmers committed suicide in Sehore and Hoshangabad district, another such death was reported from Vidisha. Be it Jyotiraditya, Digvijaya Singh or any MLA, every Congress men will fight in the forefront for the farmers.

The video was shot on June 8 when Khatik, who represents Karera Assembly segment in Shivpuri district, was holding a protest at Karera Police Station against the killing of farmers in Mandsaur.

If the assembly is an unlawful assembly within the meaning of section 141, the offender will be punishable under section 145.
