AHMEDABAD/PATAN: Indian Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal was detained in Radhanpur late in the afternoon on Wednesday.
The famous leader was detained for alleged violation of the model code of conduct as he had not sought permission for his road show.
However, local AAP leader and media coordinator H Nayak said that this was done at the behest of BJP, which has misused the government machinery.
The support that Kejriwal was getting from the common public in the villages had sent tremors in the BJP state unit, which misused the police and disrupted the programme.
Kejriwal landed in Ahmedabad early in the morning and was heading to Kutch by road, meeting farmers in Hansalpur amd Bachuraji. He was going from Hansalpur to Sami and then to Radhanpur where he was detained.
Hansalpur and Bachuraji farmers have been opposing the state government’s move to give land for Maruti plant.
The former Delhi Chief Minister had earlier said that the contest in this elections is between his party and BJP.
