Watch: Scuffle between BSP, BJP councillors in Meerut municipal corporation

It was an unruly scene in the Meerut municipal corporation when members of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came to blows during a meeting on Tuesday. A video released by news agency ANI showed scuffle breaking out between councillors of both the parties.

The clashes broke out during the Meerut Nagar Nigam Board meeting. Following a heated argument, members of both the party indulged in a scuffle. Police personnel were seen making attempts to control the situation but they failed to control the unruly officials.

This is not the first time that such a scene has been reported from the Meerut municipal corporation. Members of the BJP and the BSP had in January engaged in a heated argument in Meerut over singing of Vande Mataram. BSP members had played the song instead of singing it leading to an altercation.

The heated argument was ensued because of a proposal floated in the Meerut Municipal Corporation House to terminate the membership of a group of Muslim councillors after the leaders staged a walkout when Vande Mataram was being played.
