As per news report of NDTV, The Congress has claimed the UP government - which earlier this month detained Ms Gandhi Vadra to stop her from visiting the families of farmers killed in the Lakhimpur incident - is now trying to prevent her from talking to the family of an Arun Valmiki, who was accused of stealing ₹ 25 lakh. After she was stopped Ms Gandhi Vadra tweeted, asking "what is the government so afraid of?" "Arun Valmiki died in police custody. His family is seeking justice. I want to visit that family. What is the UP government afraid of? Why am I being stopped? Today is Lord Valmiki Jayanti... PM Modi spoke big on Buddha but this is attacking his message," she tweeted in Hindi. UP Police have said Ms Gandhi Vadra was stopped as she did not have the requisite permissions.
