Biora / Rajgarh: While Section 144 is in force in Biora of Madhya Pradesh, BJP workers who were holding a rally in support of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) got into a scuffle with the Collector.
Collector allegedly slapped a BJP worker shouting slogans of Bharat Mata Ki Jai. After this, some more people started raising slogans in the crowd, and then the Collector lost temper and started hitting the crowd.
When the protesters did not stop, the collector ran behind the youths and caught hold of a young man’s sweater. SDM Priya Verma also slapped many people. Senior police officers have also reached the spot.
To stop the rally, the Collector herself took a policeman’s baton and first hit the people with sticks to stop them. Then she scuffled with Rajgarh MLA Amar Singh Yadav, who led the maha rally. But the rally did not stop and then the Collector tried to stop the crowd by putting a car in front of the rally at Gayatri temple, but the crowd did not stop.
Meanwhile, the collector slapped Ravi Barone, BJP district media in-charge. This intensified the dispute and Collector Nidhi Nivedita and SDM Priya Verma slapped people. Some people in the crowd objected to the behaviour of the officers.
