Congress candidate from Indore-III constituency, Ashwin Joshi, while addressing party workers at party’s city office, reportedly said that he would beat the BJP workers who ‘planned his defeat by deploying unfair means and practices’. Joshi had lost the Indore-III seat to BJP veteran leader Kailash Vijayvargiya’s son Akash by more than 5000 votes.
Video clips of Joshi’s statement have been circulating on social media.

He reportedly asked his party workers not to give refuge to BJP supporters and asked them to prepare a list of people and even police officials who, according to him, were working against Congress. “I wanted to ask those, who will become ministers, not to give shelter to those people supporting BJP, Whom I will beat up”, Joshi said.
