Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi was arrested by the Madhya Pradesh police en route violence-hit Mandsaur on Thursday under section 151 of the CrPC (preventive arrest). Speaking to the media, he said he wasn’t given a reason for being arrested, and that the same was done to him in Uttar Pradesh as well.
Earlier in the day, the police had maintained that they would not permit Gandhi to visit the district.
“They don’t waive off farmers’ loan. Neither do they give any bonuses.
