WATCH | AAP MLA Chased, Thrashed in Delhi Allegedly Over Ticket Distribution for MCD Polls


A purported video showing an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Gulab Singh Yadav being chased and manhandled allegedly by party workers in Delhi was widely shared on social media on Monday.

The altercation allegedly broke out over the issue of ticket distribution for the upcoming Municipal Commission of Delhi (MCD) polls, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Dwarka) M Harsha Vardhan.

“He has been medically examined and no external injury has been found. Legal action is being taken as per statements,” he said.

The video shows an argument between Yadav and some people in a party office escalating to a physical altercation, and Yadav eventually being chased out as he was thrashed.

It was shared on social media by the Delhi BJP, which said, “AAP MLA got beaten up. Gulab Singh Yadav was accused of selling tickets because of which he got beaten up by his own party workers.” “(Chief Minister and AAP national convener) Arvind Kejriwal, this is will happen to all your corrupt MLAs one by one.”

Indian Youth Congress National President Srinivas BV also shared it on Twitter and wrote “Strong condemnation!! MLA is getting punished for Kejriwal’s sins.”

Sharing the video, BJP’s spokesperson Sambit Patra said, “Unprecedented scenes from the party that indulged in the theatrical drama of ‘honest politics’. Such is AAP’s corruption that even their members are not sparing their MLAs! A similar outcome awaits them in upcoming MCD polls.”

Yadav however said that the allegations of “selling” tickets is baseless.

“The BJP has gone berserk and making baseless allegations of selling tickets. I am at Chawla police station now. I have seen BJP’s corporator and their candidate from this ward present at the police station, trying to save those people,” he said on Twitter, sharing a clip of the police station.

The incident came on the heels of BJP’s ‘sting’ video release on Monday, which purportedly showed that the AAP was taking money for tickets to the upcoming MCD polls on December 4. The video was shot by a former AAP volunteer from Rohini, and the BJP alleged that the party leaders had sold Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) poll tickets.
