He further said that if the government does not give us a written assurance in the next four days, then the government will be responsible for whatever decision we take after that.

PI Mohan Gaude stopped the bike rally, when the villagers were moving towards Usgao and Ganjem villages. The PI informed them that the Chief Minister would be attending a function in Ganjem, thus they would be unable to conduct a rally there.
