Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi, who remains in the police net without being formally arrested even after 28 hours, has tweeted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about her detention.
What she tweeted in Hindi which roughly translated reads - “Modi ji, your government has detained me for 28 hours without any order or FIR. But those who crushed farmers have not yet been arrested. Why?”.
Priyanka Gandhi was taken into police custody early on Monday morning in the Hargaon area in Sitapur while she was on her way to Lakhimpur Kheri to meet families of the deceased farmers. After a brief argument with the policemen, Priyanka was taken to the PAC guest house and remains there till now. Priyanka has said that as soon as she is released, she will proceed to Lakhimpur Kheri to meet the bereaved families. Hundreds of Congress party workers have been sitting outside the guest house, waiting for Priyanka’s release.
Meanwhile, a senior official reportedly said that the government has taken note of the fact that Priyanka spoke to some news channels on phone while she was in custody.“We are investigating the matter and will soon take action against the channels and those responsible for arranging the interactions.”
