2 BJP Leaders Wanted Their Photo At Blankets For Poor Event. Brawl Ensued
An event to distribute blankets to the poor in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday afternoon turned into an ugly brawl between supporters of two BJP leaders, the local MP and MLA, reportedly over who should get photographed distributing the blanket first. The scuffle, captured on a mobile phone, took place 100 km from Lucknow in the presence of district officials including the police. At one point, Lok Sabha member Rekha Verma is seen slapping a man dressed in khaki. At another, the lawmaker is seen aggressively taking off her slipper and trying to slap her adversaries standing on the other side of the table with it. The blow, however, did not land.
