New Delhi: Delhi Police detained Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee, Derek O’Brien and other lawmakers after they staged a dharna inside Krishi Bhawan upon being denied a meeting with Union Minister Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti. The TMC leaders have been taken to Utsav Sadan in Delhi’s Mukherjee Nagar.

“Over two dozen TMC supporters detained, including Abhishek Banerjee and Derek O’Brien”, said a senior police officer was quoted as saying

News agency PTI showed Delhi Police personnel removing the TMC lawmakers from the Krishi Bhawan premises.

“We were scheduled to meet Union Minister Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti at 6pm today, we waited for 90 minutes, after which we were informed that she will not be able to meet us. Sadhvi Niranjan met Suvendu Adhikari today at 4 pm but we were made to wait here. If she doesn’t want to meet us, then it’s okay, but we will not go anywhere from here, we will remain sitting here”, the TMC MP said in a video shared by his party on the social media platform X.

The Trinamool Congress has been protesting in the national capital, accusing the Centre of withholding Rs 15,000 crore in dues to the state under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) and PM Awas Yojana.
