Gujarat Congress leaders counter Modi with parallel fast

Ahmedabad: Danseuse and activist Mallika Sarabhai was Sunday detained along with some Gujarat riots victims and others here ahead of their planned protest against Chief Minister Narendra Modi's 'sadbhavana' (goodwill) fast.

While being taken to the police station, Sarabhai said a police official told her that they were instructed Saturday morning to arrest her before her protest at Naroda Patia.

"A young police official told me that they were told yesterday (Saturday) morning that you are responsible to arrest Sarabhai as she comes here," Sarabhai said.

The activist added that the police gave her no reasons while taking her to the police station.

"No reason was given... The police said they were instructed," she said. Activist Mukul Sinha has also been detained.

Condemning Modi's three-day fast which continued for the second day Sunday, Sarabhai asked what was the point of 'sadbhavana' when even after nearly 10 years, the 2002 Gujarat riots victims have got no justice.

"We were to hold a silent protest. I have no idea what I am being charged with," she said.
