Lucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav was on Monday detained after he launched a sit-in protest outside his residence in Lucknow as he was stopped from going to Kannauj to lead a farmers’ protest.

Over hundreds of workers of the party, who continued with their protest against the Centre’s three farm laws enacted earlier this year, were also arrested in Kannauj.

Yadav also wrote to Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla over the protests asking him to step in.

“Apart from being a Lok Sabha member and Samajwadi Party national president, I had fulfilled my constitutional duty as UP chief minister.

There was a pre-announced programme of mine in Kannauj in support of farmers.
