Agra: In another instance of VVIP racism, Fatehpur Sikri’s BJP MLA Udaybhan Chaudhary on Monday threatened a Sub-divisional magistrate (SDM), Garima Singh.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator Chaudhary had gone to meet the SDM over farmers’ issue.
In the video of the verbal spat between the legislator and the administrative official, Chaudhary could be seen reminding SDM Singh about his ‘powers’ under the rule of democracy.
“You are talking to me in this way, are you trying to show me that you are the SDM? Don’t you know I am an MLA? How can you talk to me like this? You don’t realise my power, you don’t realise the power of democracy,” says Chaudhary in an intimidating demeanor.
Following the verbal confrontation, the supporters of the legislator also began raising slogans against the administrative official.
During the brief incident, the SDM can be seen uncomfortably registering her protest over the treatment being meted out to her.
After the incident, the SDM issued a press release stating that objectionable language has been used against her.
In may this year, during another incident of MLA’s high handedness in Uttar Pradesh, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lawmaker Harshvardhan Bajpayee was found threatening the Superintendent of Police in Allahabad after the latter failed to recognise him at an event.
