The MP is seen firing several rounds in the air from his revolver.
A group of RSS members can also be seen firing shots in tandem with the BJP MP.
The video is believed to be shot during a ‘shastra pujan’ event at Saraswati Sishu Mandir – a RSS-run school - on the day of Dussehra.
However, when questioned by the reporters, the MP said it was celebratory firing conducted in a properly controlled environment at a secluded place.
The purpose of firing was to check if the weapons were in a working condition, he was quoted as saying by media reports.
