Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has been arrested by the UP Police. Rahul and sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were going to Hathras.
“I want to walk to Hathras alone. Please tell me under which section are you arresting me?” Rahul Gandhi was seen asking the police, in a video tweeted by news agency ANI.
“We are arresting you under Section 188 IPC for violation of an order,” police responded.
“Just now police pushed me, lathicharged me and threw me to the ground. I want to ask, can only people belonging to the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) and BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) walk in this country? Can only Modi ji walk in this country? Can’t a normal person walk? Our vehicle was stopped, so we started walking,” Rahul Gandhi told reporters.
