More than fifty thousand party workers were arrested on February 22 when they tried to march towards the Vidhan Sabha which they declared they wanted to "gherao". But the Congress spokesman K.K. Mishra claimed that more than a lakh party workers were expected to join the demonstration but about fifty thousand could not reach Bhopal because they were stopped by the police at the five entry points on some or other excuse.
