Congress leader, Sunny Rajpal, Monday, was caught on camera misbehaving with a police officer in Indore. He allegedly assaulted the cop after being denied entry into a meeting which was being chaired by the Public Works Department minister, Sajjan Singh Verma.
In the video, Rajpal, who looks visibly irked, can be seen shouting and pushing the officer on duty, who in-turn politely requests the leader to cooperate. The officer can be heard saying “mein aapse nivedan karta hoon” (I am requesting you).

Despite being clearly caught misbehaving, Sunny Rajput, brazenly denied the allegations, “There was no such assault. I was just not allowed to enter the meeting,” said the Congress leader, furthering “I was in the meeting. I went to the washroom for five minutes. When I reached the gate, I was denied to re-enter”.
Rajpal stated that complaining to the authorities was out of the question since there was no assault. He furthered that he was later allowed to get inside the meeting venue.
However, this particular incident does not come as a surprise. Such acts of arrogance are very much an integral part of the Congress ecosystem. Recently we reported how Rajinder Kaur Bhattal, former CM in the state of Punjab, had slapped a young man at the Bussehra village during a public event.
In April, Tripura Congress President Pradyot Kishore Deb Burman reportedly slapped a man inside Khowai police station in Tripura after he had allegedly obstructed the convoy of Pradyot Kishore’s sister Pragya Deb Burman who is also Tripura Congress candidate.
In the CCTV footage, Pradyot and his men were seen entering the police station and resorting to vandalism against a man in a red shirt sitting on a bench in a police station. The man rises to his feet and greets the Congress chief but Pradyot suddenly slaps him across the face. Police officials present at the spot separate them immediately, following which Pradyot Dev Burman can be seen threatening him.
In a similar incident of high-headedness, Congress leader DK Shivakumar, was last year, seen slapping a young man who was trying to take a selfie with him. However, this was not the only incident. The year before last also he was caught doing something similar.
He was speaking to media at a college in Belgaum when a student standing behind him tried to take a selfie with his mobile phone. Shivkumar got agitated and suddenly hit the student on his arm. Following this, the student lost control of his phone and it crashed on the ground. The student was then seen rushing to retrieve his mobile, while Shivakumar nonchalantly went back to addressing media. When confronted by media persons, Shivkumar brazenly termed the incident as ‘normal’ and went back to talking to media persons as if nothing happened.
