JAIPUR: Police were left red-faced on Sunday morning when BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Kirori Lal Meena and his supporters hoisted a flag dedicated to a deity of the Meena community on the ramparts near Amagarh fort, defying a three-tier security cordon and prohibitory orders.
Meena and his supporters posted videos and photos from the spot, standing alongside dilapidated ramparts, about 150-meters away from the main fort. Police soon arrived and took Meena to Vidhyadhar Nagar police station. He was let off at about 1.30pm. Later, he boasted about how he defied “three-tier” police security to fulfill his commitment of going to the fort. The fort had become a flashpoint between two sections of the Meena community — one led by a Congress-backed independent MLA Ramkesh Meena and another led by Kirori Lal Meena and supported by Hindu outfits.
