The Azaadi Kooch March was flagged off from Mehsana in Gujarat. A total of 150 farmers led by Yogendra Yadav and others had joined the movement. Five kilometers into the march, Gujarat police detained Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani and more than 100 activists of the Rashtriya Dalit Adhikar March. This happened after the march proceeded in the wake of the police denying permission for the same.
The police have slapped charges under Section 143 of the IPC. The detained are now out on bail. The march is likely to proceed on its week-long journey in buses now. The original plan was to march on foot.
