New Delhi. Two elected representatives of the ruling BJP came to blows during the district planning committee meeting here on Wednesday evening in full public glare.
The incident took place when the planning committee meeting was underway at the collectorate in the presence of minister in-charge of the district, Ashutosh Tandon. BJP MP from Sant Kabir Nagar Sharad Tripathi and MLA from Mehdawal, Rakesh Baghel, got involved in a verbal duel over taking credit for a newly laid road during the district planning panel meet.
BJP has come out and supported Sharad Tripathi for being humble enough to wear local shoes and not the branded ones. BJP senior management is highly impressed with Sanjay and they want Sanjay to teach a lesson to other MPs who are still living in the VIP culture. Sanjay Tripathi with his act of taking the show in his hand has also helped promote local industry in a way where foreign players have come and set up shops earning huge margins.
Sanjay’s effort in giving such a nice social message will surely be rewarded by the BJP and they are planning to give him a bigger national role.
