According to available information, the United Veena Garba group is known to perform near the old Padera Road in the city, with their performances starting in the evening. On the previous day, as the Garba players were heading to the Garba ground, a significant traffic jam occurred near Akshar Chowk. The dispute between Parth Purohit, the Youth Morcha President of Vadodara's BJP, and motorcycle rider Maulik centered around parking issue.
What began as intense verbal exchanges quickly escalated into a physical brawl, with both parties engaging in pushing and shoving. The involvement of bystanders further exacerbated the situation.

As of late into the night, no formal police complaint had been filed regarding the incident. Nevertheless, the widespread chaos and commotion surrounding the event led to a video of the incident going viral on social media.
