A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader in Madhya Pradesh has sparked a row with his comments against Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia.
During an event in Kolaras area of MP, Radhe Shyam Dhakad of BJP said that if anyone raises fingers at Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, his hands would be cut and would slash the tongue if anyone speaks against him.
He made the remark referring to Scindia, in presence of Chouhan’s son Kartikeya Chouhan.
Later, the BJP leader remained defiant on his stand claiming that “Jyotiraditya Scindia keeps making unfiltered statements about our community and our CM”.
“So I said if someone raises a finger against our community, we will slash his hands and tongue in context of politics,” he said.
The BJP leader, however, added that he had “no personal enmity” with Scindia.
