Jan Adhikari Party chief Rajiv Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav, on Tuesday, gets arrested by police in Patna, Bihar. Well, according to the police, Yadav has been taken into custody for violating lockdown norms.
“He has been arrested for violation of lockdown. He was moving around in a vehicle without a permit. Legal action is being taken”, says Suresh Prasad, DSP town, as quoted by ANI.
While on the other hand, Jan Adhikari Chief calls the arrest unfair. He says arrest doesn’t take place for violating lockdown rules.
Hitting back at the police and the Bihar government, Pappu Yadav says, “They’ll tell you why I have been arrested. I’ve helped every family for 1.5 months. I was at it despite coming out of an operation. The government and Nitish babu (a reference to the CM Nitish Kumar) will know what this is. An arrest doesn’t take place for violation of lockdown”, as per the reports of ANI.
