Ahmedabad: Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani was arrested by Assam police on the basis of a complaint filed in Assam over his “objectionable” tweets.

He was arrested from Palanpur circuit house.

The complaint against Jignesh Mevani was filed on April 18 by a person in Kokrajhar in Assam, wherein the complainant objected to the Gujarat MLA’s tweet ahead of PM Narendra Modi’s visit to his home state.

In the tweet, Mevani, a Congress supporter, had said that PM Modi “who considers Godse as his God” should appeal for peace and harmony in face of communal clashes in Gujarat.

The PM was in the state from April 18 to 20.

Reacting to his arrest, Kanhaiya Kumar tweeted, “Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani arrested by Assam police from Palanpur circuit House. Police yet to share the copy of the FIR with us, we have been informed about some case filed against him in Assam and is likely to be deported to Assam tonight.”
