Prime News, National (Chandigarh), October 21:- A video has appeared on social media showing Punjab Congress MLA Joginder Pal and his security personnel thrashing a youth for asking what work the legislator had done for his village.
As the incident left the party embarrassed, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa said on Wednesday that a legislator has to serve the people and the MLA should not have behaved in this way.
In the video, Pal, an MLA from the Bhoa assembly seat in Pathankot district of poll-bound Punjab, is addressing a group of people on Tuesday.
Then a youth, identified as Harsh Kumar, could be heard questioning the legislator as to what work he had done during his tenure.
When a security man of the legislator held his arm to lead him away from the event, Joginder Pal could be heard asking the youth to come and speak to him.
As the MLA gave him a microphone to speak, the youth asked, “Tu ki kita (what have you done?)”
The youth’s question left Joginder Pal furious and he could be seen slapping him in the video. The MLA, his two security personnel and another person then thrashed the youth and he was taken outside of the venue. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
