Jaipur: Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani was detained by Rajasthan police on his arrival at Jaipur airport. The Dalit leader was to travel to Nagaur for addressing a public meeting. Mevani told India Today that he was detained for ‘no reason’.
Mevani said he was going to Nagaur to speak on the Indian constitution and Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar. In a series of tweets, Mevani said: “For urgent attention of media: today, immediately after I landed at Jaipur airport, few cops made me sign a letter saying MLA Jignesh Mevani’s entry is restricted in entire nagor district of Rajasthan. I was going there to talk about Indian constitution and Baba Saheb Ambedkar.”
