UP: A video featuring BJP MP Satish Gautam has created a stir on social media platforms. During a program organised in the Kol area in Uttar Pradesh's Aligarh, Gautam was captured on camera, placing his hands on the shoulders of the MLA while they were both on stage.
This gesture led to the MLA feeling uncomfortable, prompting her to change her seat and relocate elsewhere on the stage. The incident, which occurred on September 25, has been widely circulated on social media, although its authenticity has not been officially confirmed by FPJ.
Details On The Distressing Incident
