BJP chief and Union Minister Babul Supriyo has courted controversy by allegedly slapping a person contained in the get together workplace in Ranikuthi, Tollygunge.
Babul Supriyo is contesting the West Bengal meeting election from the Tollygunje constituency.
The incident happened throughout Holi celebrations organised by BJP get together employees on the Ranikuthi workplace and was captured on a video that has since gone viral.
Supriyo was current on the occasion with just a few different leaders. In the video, an individual is seen repeatedly requesting Supriyo to come back in entrance of the cameras and begin severe campaigning. The BJP MP allegedly slapped the man who occurred to be a celebration employee.
Supriyo denied the allegation, saying he solely threatened the younger man however by no means slapped him. “With people coming from one party to another, there can be some Bibhisons and some Mir Jafars (traitors). Some people are definitely trying to create disturbances. I kept my cool despite his provocations,” Supriyo was quoted as saying by information company ANI.
The BJP has come to the rescue of Supriyo by terming the younger man concerned within the incident “a plant by the rival party to tarnish the image” of Supriyo.
