New Delhi, 28 April 2022

As per news report of NDTV, The Congress will stage a sit-in-strike against the arrest of Mr Mevani in all 34 districts today, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi would visit Assam to launch and lay foundation stones of a cluster of projects worth several hundred crores. Mr Mevani, also a Dalit activist, on Tuesday was sent to five days police custody after his bail petition was rejected by Barpeta's Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM). The Gujarat MLA was arrested soon after the CJM's court in Kokrajhar district granted him bail on Monday, six days after he was arrested by Assam police from his home state in Gujarat in connection with an "objectionable" tweet against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
