Days after Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad was caught on camera beating an Air India employee, a BJP MLA Mahendra Yadav was seen slapping a toll plaza employee in Uttar Pradesh, another instance of politicians misusing their power has come to light.
Telugu Desam Party MP K Kristappa's son N Ambarish and his supporters were caught on camera vandalising a toll plaza on Anantpur-Bengaluru National highway. CCTV footage shows them smashing the windows and cabins of the toll booth and slapping the employees
Superintendent of Police Chikballapur confirmed the incident to India Today, said "On Monday morning at around 9-9.30 am, Ambarish, son of Hindupur MP was traveling towards Bangalore, while his car was stopped at the toll plaza. When he said that his car belonged to toll free category with a pass, plaza employee said that he was not eligible for it. And thus a scuffle broke out which led to the vandalism of the toll booth by the MP's son and his supporters." Police has registered a case against the Ambarish, while a counter case has also been booked against the plaza employees.
