Alert Raised by Vadodara Crime Branch Amidst Chief Minister’s Visit

Today, as Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel’s visit to Vadodara raises concerns about potential protests, the Vadodara Crime Branch has been put on high alert. Congress leaders and Senate members are being closely monitored, with the possibility of their arrest upon leaving their residences. Vadodara’s City Congress President, Ritvij Joshi, disclosed that since the Chief Minister’s scheduled meeting in Vadodara, surveillance by the Crime Branch has intensified around his house starting from last night. 

This morning, as I stepped out for a walk in Kamatibaug, the police were seen trailing me there as well. The state’s Chief Minister and BJP leaders seem apprehensive about Congress leaders’ activities. What could be the reason for this concern?
