Congress workers detained in Gujarat during assembly gherao march for creating a ruckus: Reports

As per reports, workers of the Congress party have been detained during its Khedut Aakrosh rally and assembly gherao march in Gandhinagar, Gujarat for creating a ruckus. The detained workers have been reportedly taken to Karai Police Academy. The rally was organized by the Congress party on the first day of the two-day monsoon session to demand a complete waiver of crop loans.


The Congress party had also given a formal notice for a no-confidence motion against the Vijay Rupani led BJP government in the state claiming that it had failed to deliver on the issues of farmer loan waiver, healthcare, education facilities, employment opportunities among others.

Rajeev Satav, in charge of the Congress party in Gujarat, claimed that the BJP was now afraid of his party.


However, as per reports, the rally did not garner the sort of support that the Congress party was expecting. Reportedly, the rally could not begin on time due to the vacant seats at the venue and when the speeches did begin, the crowd numbered at a meagre two thousand despite the best efforts of the Congress leaders.

Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said that the rally had little to do with the anger of the farmer community and more about Congress’ own annoyance for not having been able to win the previous assembly elections. He said that the Congress party was more interested in taking political mileage than being actually concerned about solving farmers’ problems.
