While the whole world is celebrating International Women’s Day pouring in wishes and messages, a video from the municipal elections campaigning in Vizianagaram came a shock to netizens. The video has former union minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju manhandling a woman who is apparently along with him in the rally.
From what is understood from the video, one of the woman activists tried to shower the TDP leader with petals of flowers. However, things escalated fast as the petals fell on Ashok’s eyes causing him discomfort. The Gajapati scion who lost his temper charged toward the woman who fell on the ground.
While the people around him tried to stop, Ashok was seen slapping the woman. However, the TDP leaders who were present at the rally denied the charge. They said he just pushed the plate of flowers. The video went viral in no time as many lashed out at the senior leader for losing his cool for a small incident.
Sources revealed that Raju will brief the media about the incident in the evening.
