Mumbai: Following the detainment of BJP’s veteran leader Yashwant Sinha on Monday evening in Akola while he was protesting for the state of farmers in Vidarbha, big names from the party including Shatrughan Sinha, Arun Shourie, and Varun Gandhi have extended strong support to the protest.

As per sources, the leaders would take to streets against Fadvavis government if the demands of the farmers are not fulfilled at the earliest.

Veteran BJP leader Yashwant Sinha was detained in Akola on Monday evening while he was protesting for the state of farmers in Vidarbha. A senior police official informed the media that they detained Yashwant Sinha along with 250 other farmers outside the district Collectorate as per provisions of section 68 of the Bombay Police Act.

Sinha and hundreds of farmers were protesting against the government for its alleged apathy towards cotton and soybean cultivators outside the Akola district collector’s office.

“We are trying to convince Sinha that the government is sensitive towards farmers issues. We have told him that if he wishes, he is free to leave,” District Collector Asit Kumar Pandey told the media. Pandey said the former Union minister was insisting that FIRs be lodged against bogus Bt cotton companies. The government has already taken strict action and filed FIRs against six such companies, he said.

While speaking to the media persons, Sinha said that he will stay firm on his protest would stay put even if police allowed him to leave. “I wish to tell the police, district administration and the state government that if we are formally arrested and released and they think that we will go home, then they are under the wrong impression,” Sinha said.
