Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today extended her "full support" to former Union minister Yashwant Sinha in his fight for the cause of farmers and said she was concerned about the veteran, who was detained by Police.

She said she was sending MP Trivedi to meet Sinha, who was detained at Akola in last evening while protesting along with hundreds of farmers against the government's alleged apathy towards cotton and soybean cultivators of the region.

"I am concerned about @YashwantSinha Ji former union minister in jail," Banerjee tweeted.

"I am sending our MP Trivedi to meet him. @YashwantSinha is fighting for the cause of farmers. He has our full support," she added.
