Akhilesh Tiwari, secretary, Deen Dayal Vahini, at a press conference here termed the denial of holding the protest as "undemocratic".

He claimed that the chief minister was afraid of the 'satyagraha' and had imposed Section 144 in entire Jaipur South area. "This is strange," he said.

Akhilesh said, "The BJP MLA will walk to the chief minister's residence and this will not be a violation of Section 144. If the administration takes any action then appropriate action will be taken."

He accused Raje of grabbing public property worth Rs 2,000 crore and stopping a Rs 500 pension to the poor and Rs 30 monthly grant for cows.
