Aligarh, October 1: In what can be termed as a major embarrassment to the BJP, a video featuring party MP Satish Gautam has gone viral on the social media, creating a stir. In the video, Gautam has been captured on camera, placing his hands on the shoulders of the woman 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.
