Priyanka Gandhi detained after staging sit-in

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was taken into preventive custody yesterday when she went to meet the victims of Sonbhadra incident in Uttar Pradesh in which 10 people, including three women, were killed over a land dispute. The Gandhi scion sat on dharna in Mirzapur alleging that the administration has stopped them from going to Sonbhadra. Earlier in the day, she met victims at Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. “I want to peacefully meet the family members of the victims who had fallen to the bullets in the clash. I want to see the orders under which I have been stopped to meet them. I can move ahead only with four people. I want to meet the victims,” Priyanka said while sitting on the dharna.

Priyanka took to Twitter saying the BJP was unsuccessful in catching the criminal, however, it is becoming an obstruction in carrying her duty and requested the Uttar Pradesh government to stop the crime.

“It is the duty of the UP government to catch the criminals. It is my duty to stand with the victims of the crime. While the BJP was unsuccessful in preventing the crime, the party is not allowing me to carry my duty. Nobody can stop me from supporting the victims of the crime. Please stop the crime,” she wrote on Twitter.

After Priyanka was taken into preventive custody, husband Robert Vadra called on the arrest as “completely unconstitutional” and questioned the intentions of the government.

“The way my wife & congress leader, Priyanka has been arrested, is completely unconstitutional. No documents were produced for the arrest.
