As soon the news of the incident hit the headlines, Congress spokesperson Pankaj Chaturvedi hit out at MP CM on Twitter saying,”The Chief Minister has slapped a policeman. Why a case of obstructing a Public Servant is not being registered against the leader of a party which keeps harping on morality?”
“Sceptical of a possible defeat in civic polls stressed out CM slaps his security guard,” Chaturvedi tweeted further.
Arun Yadav, Congress’ MP chief also attacked Chouhan on micro-blogging site and said, “CM and BJP workers manhandle police jawan publically which clearly shows the concern of the CM owing to the growing clout of Congress.”
