Navjot Sidhu Warns UP Over Priyanka Gandhi Arrest

News, Politic, World Comments Off 2

Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Tuesday warned the Uttar Pradesh government that the Punjab Congress will lead a march to UP’s Lakhimpur district – where violence erupted on Sunday, killing eight people – if the accused is not arrested, and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who is in police custody since yesterday, is not released.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said she was arrested “illegally” in Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur on Monday when she was on her way to Lakhimpur where eight people, including four farmers, were killed on Sunday. Violence erupted in the UP district, about 400 km from Delhi, when farmers were protesting against BJP leaders.

The Congress has been attacking the BJP over Ms Gandhi Vadra’s arrest, saying no arrest memorandum has been shared. Priyanka Gandhi said she was “manhandled, pushed and shoved” during the confrontation. Today, former Union Minister P Chidambaram, while talking to NDTV, said, “No woman can be arrested before sunrise.”
