Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh): Union minister Narendra Singh Tomar avoided media queries regarding the viral video in which his son Devendra Pratap was seen discussing cash dealings worth hundreds of crores of rupees at the peak poll time. The union minister was in Gwalior on Tuesday to address a public meeting for BJP candidate Bharat Singh Kushwaha when he was seen pushing away all the media mics and rushing towards his car when asked about his son’s viral video.
Tomar was addressing a public gathering in Hirapur and discussed the policies of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in detail. He also urged people to vote for BJP in the assembly elections to be held on Friday (November 17). However, as soon as the meeting ended and the reporters started swarming him for his statement on Devendra Tomar’s money dealing case he immediately left the spot.
According to the onlookers, the minister did not even look back and headed towards his helicopter with his car.
2 videos in public so far
Notably, there is political turmoil in Madhya Pradesh ahead of elections after a video of Narendra Singh Tomar's elder son Devendra Pratap Singh Tomar talking to a broker went viral earlier this month. In the viral video, Devendra was seen discussing a transaction worth Rs 100 crore from someone called ‘Tyagi.
If this was not enough, on Monday another video came to fore in which Devendra alias Ramu Bhaiya can be seen talking to a broker about transactions from Chandigarh.
The opposition Congress has come at the saffron party with all guns blazing and has demanded a probe from CBI, ED and Income Tax department. It has also questioned the silence of PM Modi on the whole matter.
