Yogendra Yadav was detained by Delhi Police late last night (August 10) from the farmers’ protest site at the Jantar Mantar. Senior lawyer and another member of the Swaraj Abhiyan, Prashant Bhushan rushed to the police station on hearing Yadav’s detention. “I have been beaten up, manhandled, dragged, pushed and arrested at the parliament street police station,” Yadav wrote on his twitter handle. Earlier, a ‘tractor march’ for the cause of farmers’ rights organised by the Swaraj Abhiyan group led by AAP rebels Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan were prevented from placing a “plough” in a symbol of protest outside the prime minister’s residence in New Delhi. Scores of farmers from across the country had planned to place an installation today in front of the Prime Minister’s residence here as a symbol of protest against the Delhi Race Course, which they want to be converted into a farmers’ memorial. The protesters, however, were prevented by police from marching any further than Jantar Mantar. “We don’t believe in politics of deception; we work with honesty… We presented the government with an offer that only 20 women volunteers will go peacefully and place this ‘plough’ there, but police rejected that, so, now we will stand here till we are allowed to move forward,” Yadav told reporters.
