Gulab Singh Yadav, an AAP MLA from Matiala assembly constituency, was reportedly assaulted by his party workers on Monday, allegedly for selling MCD elections tickets, according to the BJP.
Gulab Singh Yadav, an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA from Matiala assembly constituency, was reportedly assaulted by his party workers on Monday, allegedly for selling Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections tickets, according to the BJP.
Several BJP politicians posted the alleged footage of the event on their social media accounts. The AAP MLA was in the midst of a heated altercation with a group of party workers in a video that went viral on social media. He was then chased out of the workplace and manhandled. The assailants later chased him and he sought sanctuary inside the police station.
Delhi BJP while sharing the video on Twitter claimed that Yadav was thrashed by AAP workers on the charge of selling tickets.
“AAP MLA was beaten up! Aam Aadmi Party MLA Gulab Singh Yadav was thrashed by AAP workers on the charge of selling tickets. Kejriwal ji, this is how the turn of all the corrupt MLAs of AAP will come,” Delhi BJP tweeted in Hindi.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra also took a dig and said AAP’s corruption is such that even their members are not sparing their MLAs.
“Unprecedented scenes from the party that indulged in the theatrical drama of ‘honest politics’. Such is AAP’s corruption that even their members are not sparing their MLAs! A similar outcome awaits them in upcoming MCD polls,” he said.
BJP Delhi unit chief Adesh Gupta termed the AAP as a “government of thugs”.
“In the last 8 years, along with the people of Delhi, they did not back down from deceiving their workers as well. MLA from Matiala was thrashed by AAP workers for selling tickets! This is a government of thugs, which does not spare even its workers, then how will it spare the common people,” said Gupta.
