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.
