    Yes it's very important that Rajasthan police check whether Rahul broke traffic rules by riding a bike without having a helmet.If you are able to find BJP supporter who can verify this ,then what are you going to do,hang him!Why has normal interaction between public and politician been barred? If he is not going to make speeches,what's the reason to stop him? While checking for violations,perhaps police should also look at overloading of trolleys ,trucks carrying the kisan protestors and hold them accountable.Are you going to put all in jail? Let's face it .BJP govt has become dictatatorial in its actions and is a law to itself.MP govt first denied that deaths were result of police firing.How stupid.Who are you trying to fool,the kisans who were fired at? Modi however is busy planning his overseas trips to USA and elsewhere.No doubt talking with Trump is more important than hand farmer agitation.There is no agreement to be signed,just a casual visit.Cost immaterial.
