Not only this but PM Modi also slammed party leaders for giving a rousing welcome to Akash Vijayvargiya after he was released from jail and added, “Those who welcomed him, such leaders should also be sacked from the party.”
Kailash Vijayvargiya, BJP General Secretary and Akash’s father, received him outside the jail with his supporters. They garlanded him and took him back home in a procession firing gunshots in the air and bursting firecrackers along the way.
The BJP MLA spent four nights in jail for thrashing with a cricket bat a municipal corporation official who was trying to evict occupants of a house declared dangerous for living. He was granted bail a Special Court in Bhopal on Saturday.
