Jaipur: Angry over the district
administration`s decision of not allowing Meena community
leader Kirori Lal Meena to hold a rally in Udaipur, supporters
of the Dausa MP blocked the Jaipur-Agra National Highway for
over two hours at three places in the district.
The supporters blocked the highway at Mahua, Balaji
Mod and Lalsot.
Senior administrative and police officials intervened
in the matter and pacified them following which they moved
from the highway and it was opened for smooth traffic.
Meena was scheduled to take out a rally on Thursday
demanding food and employment opportunities for tribals.
He was denied permission to take out a rally by the
administration in Udaipur yesterday.
He was arrested yesterday and later released under
apprehension that he might disrupt law and order in the city
during his rally.
