RAHA , Oct 5 : Hundreds of Raha Block Congress workers and leaders staged a protest in front of Raha Circle office today against the arrest of AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadhra, when she was on her way to console farmers who were injured during the Lakhimpur Kheri incidents in Uttar Pradesh following farmers' protesting against three farm laws on Sunday.
Participating in the protest under the aegis of Raha Block Congress committee jointly with Nagaon district Congress Young Brigade, Sashi Kanta Das, Congress MLA, Raha alleged that the son of Union Minister of State for Home had killed four farmers protesting against the farm laws by running his car over them.
