Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Dinesh Sharma was greeted with a garland of shoes by an angry local in Madhya Pradesh.
Dhar: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Dinesh Sharma was greeted with a garland of shoes by an angry local in Madhya Pradesh.
The incident took place in Dhar's Dhamnod on Sunday.
Sharma, nominated from Dhamnod by BJP, was campaigning for the upcoming civic elections.
During the door-to-door campaign, Sharma was greeted with a garland of shoes and later made to wear it by a stranger.
Angry over lack of water in the region, a man took this step of humiliating the BJP candidate.
“There's acute water problem. We have complained about it. Our women went to the then chairperson to complain. Instead, a complaint was registered against them. They were called multiple times to police station, even at night. So I did this,” said the man who made Dinesh Sharma wear garland of shoes.
Responding to the entire episode, Sharma said, “They are one of my own. There must have been something which upset him & he acted like that. We will sit together and talk. I am like their child.”
