At present, while the Gujarat Congress is attacking the government on the issue of inflation, the Congress has also come forward on the issue of the arrest of Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani.

The Gujarat Congress is continuously protesting about this. Rajkot Congress also protested against the arrest of Jignesh Mevani. Congress condemned the manner of arresting MLA Jignesh Mevani, calling it an act of government repression.

In protest against the arrest of Jignesh Mevani and rising prices, Congress leaders and workers, wearing black masks, staged a silent dharna at the Rajkot collectorate.

During this, however, scenes of confrontation arose when the Congress leaders were taken into custody by the police. The police arrested more than 20 Congress leaders who were appearing.

Significantly, Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani was arrested by the Assam Police a few days ago from Palanpur Circuit House.
