By on Sunday, June 11, 2017
The issue of police firing over the farmers is not going to be pacified. The political men’s sympathy to those who were killed -- signals that other parties cannot easily forsake the issue.

All of these were going to Mandsaur to meet with the families of those farmers who were killed in the police firing. The police stopped these activists on arriving at Dhodar Toll Plaza in Zaora city of district Ratlam. All these were in custody at circuit house for half an hour.
They went from there after being released, told Deepak Kumar Shukla, City SP. Mohit Kumar Pandey, president JNUStudent Union and the delegates of farmers union were participants in these activists. Police announced there that their visit to Mandsaur may break the peace. It is too noticeable that the clamped curfew had been lifted from there, but the section 144 is still applicable.
After the arrest, Swaraj India political party leader, Mr Yadav told the media person, “Our arrest is against the law because there were no written orders to show us.”

But we were not allowed.” According to the police, after being prohibited to go to Mandsaur, the activists in protest began to stage Dharna on Mahonimach highway. The traffic blockade took place for a while.
