Ahmedabad: Senior Congress leaders including MLA Bavku Undhad were today detained by the police in Amreli district during a protest march against a state government sponsored programme in which Chief Minister Narendra Modi and other ministers were present.

Police later released the detained leaders including Undhad, former MP Virji Thummar, Amreli Congress president Thakershi Metalia and over two dozen Congress workers after the programme was over.

A police official from Amreli said the Congress leaders were detained as they tried to create law and order problem at the Chief Minister's programme.

However, state Congress president Sidhdharth Patel hit out at the district administration for detaining the workers and alleged that the state government was trying to gag the voice of opposition party leaders.
