“Deposed leaders’ detention” creates political crisis in Catalonia


The pro-independence groups have organised severe protests in Catalonia and across Spain demanding an immediate release of the deposed leaders, who were arrested by the Spanish police officials at the behest of the central leaders.

The Spanish government recently dismissed the Catalan government which had unilaterally declared the Independence of the region which comes under Spain.

The highly autonomous Spanish territory, where the pro-independence groups have been actively campaigning to achieve the state of Independence for last few years, is one of the most prosperous regions of Spain.

When the central authority of Madrid, which does not love to lose this wealth bowl, decided to register cases against the pro-Independence leaders, some leaders including former Catalan supremo Charles Puigdemont escaped to Belgian.

Anyway, aiming to crush the Independence movement, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who have declared a snap election in Catalonia, has urged the pro-Spain people to make the election a huge success.

The aforementioned snap election is likely to take place on December 21, 2017. The election result will decide the future of the Spanish government, who have been desperately trying to justify its move to forcefully impose an central administration over a territory, which has all right to enjoy autonomy, through coercion, since the dismissal of the Catalonian government, and those leaders who have led the separatist movement in Spain.
