On Camera, AAP MLA Gulab Singh Yadav Beaten Up In Delhi, Runs To Save Himself


The MLA was beaten up after a dispute cropped up.

New Delhi:

The video of an Aam Aadmi Party MLA being thrashed is being widely circulated on social media, bringing cheer to the BJP camp ahead of a string of elections. Arvind Kejriwal’s party is yet to comment on the issue.

The MLA is the party’s Delhi unit leader Gulab Singh.

Sources said Mr Singh, who represents Matiala in the Delhi assembly, was holding a meeting with party workers at Shyam Vihar around 8 pm, when trouble broke out.

It is not yet known what the dispute was about, but amid a heated exchange, the workers started manhandling the MLA, grabbing him by the collar and pushing.

As Mr Singh tried to dash out, the workers gave chase and rained blows on him. The MLA was finally seen running away.

Among those who shared the video was the BJP’s Sambit Patra.

“Unprecedented scenes from the party that indulged in the theatrical drama of ‘honest politics’. Such is AAP’s corruption that even their members are not sparing their MLAs! A similar outcome awaits them in upcoming MCD polls,” read his caption for the 1.30-minute clip.

Today, the BJP released what they claimed were sting videos that proved that AAP was selling tickets for the civic polls. Mr Patra told reporters that the video was shot by an AAP volunteer from North West Delhi, who was asked to pay Rs 80,000 for a ticket. The sting video revealed that 110 tickets of AAP were reserved for distribution in exchange for money,

Arvind Kejriwal, who is campaigning in Gujarat for the coming assembly elections, rubbished the claims.

“The BJP releases ‘manohar kahaniyan’ (referring to a popular magazine of fictional stories) every day. It comes up with a sting operation. The people of Delhi are asking what they did in the municipal corporation (MCD) for 15 years and they have no answer. The people of Gujarat are asking what they did in 27 years and they have no answer,” Mr Kejriwal told reporters.

AAP has been holding an upbeat campaign, hoping to capture power in Delhi’s civic polls. The party is banking on anti-incumbency after three consecutive terms of the BJP. From garbage removal to timely salaries for MCD employees, Mr Kejriwal has announced “10 guarantees”.

Still more crucial are the elections in Gujarat, where AAP has pitched itself as the chief contender against the BJP, which has been ruling the state since 1995.
