However, Kanhaiya was detained before he could move ahead with the rally. Taking this to his Twitter, Kanhaiya wrote, “आज बापू-धाम (चम्पारण) में गांधीजी को नमन करके ग़रीब-विरोधी CAA-NRC-NPR के विरोध में एक महीने की जन-गण-मन यात्रा की शुरूआत होनी थी। समाज के सभी तबक़ों के लोग इस यात्रा में शामिल होने के लिए मौजूद हैं, लेकिन प्रशासन ने कुछ देर पहले हम सबको हिरासत में ले लिया है।” (Today, a month-long Jan-Gana-Man Yatra was to begin in Bapu-Dham (Champaran) to protest against the anti-poor CAA-NRC-NPR by bowing to Gandhiji. People from all sections of the society are present to participate in this yatra, but the administration has taken us all into custody some time ago.)

In another tweet, he posted, “इस यात्रा को शुरू होने से रोके जाने पर लोगों ने भितिहरवा गांधी आश्रम (चम्पारण) के बाहर शांतिपूर्ण धरना शुरू कर दिया है। दम है कितना दमन में तेरे देख लिया है देखेंगे जगह है कितनी जेल में तेरे देख लिया है देखेंगे ?✊?” (People have started a peaceful dharna outside the Bhitiharwa Gandhi Ashram (Champaran) when this yatra has been halted. Dum hai how much Daman has seen you; I will see how much jail you have seen. ?)
