Police had put up barricades near Hasanganj toll plaza to prevent Akhilesh from proceeding towards Auraiya. When his carcade came to a halt by the barricades, the police detained him.

Akhilesh Yadav was going to meet former SP MLA Pradeep Yadav, who was taken into custody by Awana police on Wednesday for causing ruckus during the zilla nomination procedure to elect the District Panchayat Chairperson.

Some SP leader were also detained on Wednesday following the clashes between the workers and police.

The violence by the party workers provoked the deployed police to cane-charge them.

Yadav, talking to reporters after his detention, alleged that the BJP government was violating the democratic norms and had stopped him from going to Auriyya to meet the party leaders.
