Congress MLA in Rajasthan insults woman sarpanch, prevents her from sitting on the stage

Sarpanch Chandu Devi said that she felt insulted as representative of the village

While the Congress President Rahul Gandhi keeps talking about bringing equality in society, it seems his party members don’t believe in it and elitism is deeply ingrained in them. Such an elitist behaviour was recently shown by newly elected Congress MLA from Osian in Rajasthan, Divya Maderna, when she insulted a woman sarpanch under her constituency.

On 16th March, Divya Maderna had organised an event to thank the panchayats under the Orian constituency for winning the byelection to the assembly constituency. The Sarpanch of Khetasar panchayat, Chandu Devi was one of the invitees to the event. During the thank you meeting, Chandu Devi went to sit on an empty chair that was kept beside the Divya Maderna, but the MLA prevented her from doing so, and asked her to sit among the audience. After this, Chandu Devi silently went way and sat on the ground along with other people.

Chandu Devi said that the organisers had arranged a chair for her beside the MLA as a representative from the village. On the request of villagers, she had gone to greet the MLA in the first meeting held by the newly elected MLA in the village. Despite being a representative of people, the MLA insulted me didn’t allow me to sit beside her, the woman sarpanch said.

The incident was captured in a video which has already gone viral on social media. In the video, it can be clearly seen that Chandu Devi had gone to occupy the chair that was kept for her beside Divya Maderna. After greeting the MLA, when the sarpanch proceeds to take seat, Divya stops her, and asks her to go and sit among the audience. Chandu Devi does not protest to this and goes away without saying anything, and sits among the audience.

Divya Maderna is the daughter of former Rajasthan minister Mahipal Maderna, who is in jail in the Bhanwari Devi murder case.
