LUCKNOW: Congress national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra defied police cordon in Lucknow to head off towards Lakhimpur late on Sunday night. She managed to reach Sitapur before she could be stopped.
A fiery Priyanaka took on the cops for stopping her in Lucknow and Sitapur. Citing provisions of the law, she demanded an arrest warrant to be produced and dared police to formally arrest her. Making her sit inside any police vehicle without these, she said, would amount to kidnapping and assault.
“Where is the order? Show it to me…how can you stop me if you have no order to show,” she asked police officers, who had arranged for her to be restricted to Kaul House, her residence in Lucknow, on Sunday night after she arrived by flight from Delhi.
From there, within minutes, she dodged police and sneaked out of the bungalow. Police took help of cellular phone data to track her on National Highway 24, connecting Lucknow with Lakhimpur via Sitapur.
Anticipating that police might stall her at Khairabad toll booth, she detoured from Sidhauli and towards Hargaon to take the road to Lakhimpur Kheri 22km away.
Despite this, police intercepted her in Hargaon where she dared them again as they reportedly manhandled her.
“Don’t think that I do not understand your designs. The way you are behaving invites legal action…this amounts to attempt to molest, physical assault, attempt to kidnap and harm under the law. Show me the warrant. Learn to talk to women,” she warned the officials.
Videos of the argument are doing rounds on social media.
From Hargaon though, she was taken to Sitapur to a government guest house. While in detention there, Priyanka took to Gandhigiri and decided to sweep the floor of her room.
By heading towards Lakhimpur at night itself, she also stumped the SP and BSP leadership who had announced to head for Lakhimpur on Monday morning.
Though Priyanka was not freed till late evening, she continued to voice her opinion through social media.
“The Lakhimpur incident shows the extent to which the BJP government can go to lay atrocities on farmers. We will not let their voice be suppressed. The anti-farmer plans of the BJP government will not be allowed to succeed,” she tweeted.
Holding the Union minister of state for home and his son responsible for the political tension in Lakhimpur, Priyanka said: “Why is the BJP government protecting them? Instead of taking us into custody, the government should be quick to act against the guilty BJP leaders.”
