Jignesh Mevani, now elected to state legislative assembly from Vadgam and Dalit agitation leader, was denied permission for the victory rally that was scheduled in Vadaj on Thursday.Ahmedabad police decided to crack whip after Mevani held a massive protest outside Gomtipur police station on Wednesday night alleging that liquor dens were still rampant in the area and even threatened to launch an agitation if the dens were not shut within 24 hours.During the protest, Mevani had alleged that the local police personnel were also involved in the liquor racket and even threatened to strip the cops of their uniform. The protest lasted until late night and was dispersed after he had a word with the senior police officers.Mevani held a roadshow after the locals apprised him of the illicit liquor being sold despite a statewide ban. He later converted the show into an impromptu protest where he made serious allegations against the government and police department in general.The cops then decided to cancel permission for Mevani’s rally on Thursday. Mevani then met the city police commissioner A K Singh.”We had a meeting with Mevani regarding the Gomtipur incident. He seemed apologetic during the meeting. His utterances were utmost disrespectful towards the policemen, I and the department and they were made in public. We will not tolerate such language and may seek action against him,” Singh said.A detailed report will be sent to the Vidhan Sabha Speaker regarding the disrespectful speech by Mevani, he said.When asked about the allegations made by Mevani, Singh said, “We don’t claim we have shut down all the liquor dens in the city, but we have raided scores of them. This is part of our routine activities and we make arrests too.”
