PM Modi’s Brother Prahlad Stages Dharna At Airport; Know Why

Lucknow: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s brother Prahlad staged a dharna at Lucknow’s Chaudhary Charan Singh airport on Wednesday, alleging that police did not let his supporters reach there and took them into custody, PTI reported.

According to Bhupendra Singh, the airport’s Additional General Manager (Operations), Prahlad Modi arrived at Lucknow by an Indigo flight around 4 pm.

Unhappy over police stopping his supporters from reaching the airport, Prahlad sat on a dharna at the airport premises itself.

Police denied Prahlad’s charge.

Prahlad, who had come to Uttar Pradesh to take part in social programmes in Sultanpur, Jaunpur and Pratapgarh, left after an hour and a half.

“After reaching here, I came to know that the workers who were coming to receive me were held by the Lucknow police and made to sit in a police station. Efforts are on to lodge cases against them,” Prahlad said.

He claimed some police officers told him there was “an order” to this effect from the Prime Minister’s Office.

“I felt that it would not be right if my children (workers) are in jail and I am free. Either let them go or I am sitting on a strike at the airport. Some police officers reached here and said there is an order to this effect from the Prime Minister’s Office and I demand to see the copy of the order,” Prahlad said.

“Goondagardi will neither help the government here nor the Prime Minister’s office,” he added.

He told the police if they did not give him the copy of the order, he would approach the Supreme Court.
