Caught on camera: Madhya Pradesh Congress leader Ajay Singh slaps party worker
Madhya Pradesh Congress leader and Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh has landed himself in a small controversy as a video purportedly showing him slapping a party worker to push him away from the police barricade emerged.
The incident took place when Singh was in Sagar to participate in Congress’ protest against farmers’ deaths in Mandsaur.
However, Singh said he did not hit the worker but only pushed him away.
“When we were going to submit a memorandum to the district collector, some workers were getting angry. I stopped them as we wanted peaceful protest,” he said.

Meanwhile, regarding the victims in Mandsaur, Ajay Singh also claimed that their autopsy didn’t find bullets in the bodies of victims who died in police firing in Mandsaur during the farmers’ agitation. “I demand forensic examination of policemen’s guns to know the truth behind missing bullets,” the Congress leader said. “It also means that the state government deliberately removed the bullets from the bodies of dead farmers,” he alleged.
