Desperate rush for food packets: The local BJP leaders were left red faced as a number of people attending the CM’s election meet left the venue hearing that food packets had arrived. Even as the CM was giving his address, people started running for the food packets. Some lucky ones managed to grab 5-10 packets, while there were some who did not get even one.
Woman creates ruckus: During the election meeting, a middle-aged woman started raising slogans demanding safety from goons. A video surfaced on social media in which a woman was seen shouting, ‘We have voted you to power so please pay attention to my appeal, people are trying to kill us, nobody is helping us. We do not have our house we will commit suicide’. Later the cops took the woman away and detained her for a few hours. She was later released. Sources claimed that the woman was mentally unstable.
