BJP councillor slaps official

A BJP councillor from Sangam Vihar ward on Wednesday slapped a MCD junior engineer who had come to check unauthorized construction in the area.

BJP’s Neeraj Gupta, councillor from Ward 188, was caught on camera slapping the engineer and then trying to beat him up again when the locals intervened and tried to stop the politician. He was also seen pushing and jostling members in the crowd.

The AAP, however, took on the BJP and Sanjay Singh said: “What does BJP want? If they think they can win this election through violence, they are mistaken.”

Anticipating loss in the coming assemble election, the BJP distanced itself from the incident.

BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli told media: “As a principle no one especially a public representative should resort to violence. We are not aware of specifications of the incident but no person or any public figure should slap anybody.”
