भाजपा के एक वरिष्ठ नेता को जन आशीर्वाद यात्रा के दौरान
पुलिस कर्मियों ने धक्कामुक्की कर बाहर खदेड़ा।
नेता कहते नजर आये मेने बचपन से भाजपा की दरी उठाई है।
ग़द्दारी पूजी जा रही है,
वफ़ादारी धक्के खा रही है। pic.twitter.com/t7riAy3G4O

As per NDTV report, when Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia was addressing the people, MLA Akash Vijayvargiya, who was sitting on the stage with him, got up and started talking to the BJP leader Gaurav Randive, who was sitting close to Scindia. Scindia, who was giving a speech, got miffed and asked Vijayvargiya to remain calm. Following this, the BJP MLA sat down.
On Thursday (August 19), about 300 platforms were set up on the 17 km route covered by Jyotiraditya Scindia in Indore during the yatra, where thousands of people had gathered. Questioning the crowds at the yatra, Congress asked whether it is mandatory to follow the COVID-19 guidelines only for common citizens.
