New Delhi :
A video of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator from Agra, Udaybhan Chaudhary, threatening a woman sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) has gone viral on social media. Shared by news agency ANI, the video purportedly shows Chaudhary and his supporters surrounding SDM Garima Singh and shouting slogans against her. Choudhary had reportedly gone to meet the SDM over the “farmers issues” with his supporters. However, the mad on power BJP leader forgot how to behave with a woman and started shouting at her.
“How dare you argue with me? You are the SDM but don’t you know I am an MLA? Don’t you realise my power... the power of democracy?” the violent BJP leader yelled at the lady while his supporters kept on making loud noises to scare her.
The BJP leader also called SDM Singh a "naukar". "You are working against the government. Do you want to show me that you are an SDM? A servant (Aap sarkar ke virudh kaam kar rahi hain…humein dikhaana chahti hain aap SDM hain? Ek naukar).”
