Politicians have managed to have things their way, be it from getting from one place to another in traffic, or refusing to wait in a queue. The latest incident is a BJP MLA, who assaults a toll booth employee because he had to wait.
The MLA, Rakesh Rathore, has been caught on a CCTV camera slapping a toll gate employee because he had to wait for 10 seconds, yes, 10. This comes at a time when the Modi government banned the use of red beacons on cars and is putting an end to the VIP culture in India.
The video also shows the politician grabbing the barrier and making way to assault the toll booth employee further. The incident reportedly took place in Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, however, the time of the incident is unknown.
The incident unfolds as the MLA was angry after he had to wait for 10 seconds for him and his convoy clear the toll gate. Also, the MLA's staff wanted to get through the toll gate without paying.
Reacting to the video that has already made its rounds online, Rakesh Rathore claims that the person in the video is not him, and in fact was Mahendra Yadav, a Samajwadi Party leader from Biswa. He also said that the media aired the video without any verification.
