It’s not to support any party,” he clarified. “Movement is mine, the miscreants are your(the CM’s) people. “Do arrest, but arrest me alone. I am ready.” he warned the government. “My wife will sit on indefinite fast at home. If you arrest her too, she will join me in Jail in fast,” he said. He mentioned that he wouldn’t apply even for bail if he is arrested. He mentioned that he will chalk out the next course of action with the kapu leaders and would announce shortly.
