A dozen of supporters of MLA Rakesh Pratap Singh joined him in the protest this evening in front of the police station.
Singh alleged that his supporter Babulal Shukla was being harassed by the local administration.
The legislator told PTI that he sat on the 'dharna' after police and revenue department officials stopped the construction of Shukla's house in Bhatgawan village. He said Shukla has the documents required for constructing his house.
Singh claimed that police officials were working at the behest of Shukla's opponents.
"Nobody can have justice in the present government," he said, warning that he will launch a campaign against the alleged harassment if the issue is not resolved soon.
No administration official was available for comment.
