Defying the police restrictions imposed on entering Madhya Pradesh, a visibly angry Rahul Gandhi stormed out of his vehicle on Thursday afternoon and rushed to face the security cordon at the Rajasthan-MP border. Demanding the police to allow his vehicle to pass, Rahul Gandhi was seen pushing one of the police officers tasked with securing the state border.

Aap kaise rok sakte ho (How can you stop me),” Rahul Gandhi lashed at a policeman. Rahul Gandhi was earlier seen ridding pillion on a bike in his bid to dodge the police. Earlier, the district administration denied him permission to enter Mandsaur. Rahul Gandhi wanted to meet the families of the five farmers killed in a police firing on Tuesday.

In a series of tweets, Rahul Gandhi said: “Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh governments are doing their best to prevent me from entering Madhya Pradesh and meeting the families of the farmers killed in Mandsaur.

“What law of the land says that it is illegal to stand in solidarity with farmers who were killed simply for demanding what is their right?”

The Congress vice-president was later detained at the Neemuch border by Madhya Pradesh Police. He was booked under Section 151 and placed under arrest.

Rahul Gandhi told reporters that Modi could waive loans worth crores for the rich but not for farmers. “He can’t give the right rates for their agricultural produce, can’t give them bonus, can’t give compensation… He can only give them bullets,” Rahul Gandhi said.

Police also tried to stop JDU leader Sharad Yadav and Congress leaders Digvijaya Singh and Kamal Nath, saying curfew was imposed in Mandsaur.

    The headline is twisted and factually wrong! Come on Indian Express! He says how can you stop? He doesn't say how can you stop ME! What he implies is that how can you stop anyone from paying condolences to someone who's lost his dear ones. And your reporter should be ashamed of misrepresenting this event and painting it as if Rahul has said something that involves his own self.

          Congress and commie goons have turned the peaceful farmers agitation into a violent form. The opposition is not hesitating if few farmers are killed in the process. Pappu had not gone there to help farmers as Congress never cared for them. He had gone there to see how much success the violence created by his goons has affected the government. Oppositions has nothing to offer farmers except few deaths and destruction of public property. Modi government is working on farmers problems and will now pay more focused attention. farmers should isolate the Congee goons and talk with state governments.

              Rahul hi wanted to visit the killed family members and how it can be a law and order problem in the state. Center Modi Government as of now only succeeds to protect the cows and its holy , nothing more than that. Indias soul laying in its secularism. Let's talk about the chaos past 3 years under Modi Government in India which more than doubled and thousands killed, molested, oppressed in our nation. If a politician is raising his voice against the utter bad system we have under Modi how it can lead to creating issues. BJP wants to oppress the nation and its people voice. A person who dares to question this and blocking the communal forces further spreading chaos can only be a hope for our nation. Rahul Jee. We support you for standing for the poor, oppressed, majority and minorities in this country. Modi is only a communal leader of the nation who only know to divide and rule.

                Farmers have died. The state Govt has announced hefty compensation for the bereaved families. BJP is in power for last 15 years in the state. Agriculture is more of a state subject.Why is this agrarian crisis at a time when there is bumper crop? In stead of analysing that problem we are discussing and blaming Ra Ga who is a non-issue .What a pity!

                  After freedom of expression, right-to-incite seems to be the new buzz word for shameless sickular vultures!
