BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya breaks his silence, calls his son and the civic officer “kache khiladi”

Kailash Vijayvargiya said that the civic officers should not be arrogant and should talk to people's representatives. Since he himself was once a "the councillor, mayor and a minister of the department", he, therefore, knows the norms, said the BJP leader

The Bhartiya Janata Party veteran leader, Kailash Vijayvargiya, breaks his silence over his son and BJP MLA Akash Vijayvargiya’s arrest for thrashing a municipal officer in full public view, for which he was later granted bail.

Kailash said that the incident was “very unfortunate” and that there was “mishandling from both the sides”. “Kachhe Khiladi hain, Akash ji bhi aur Nagar Nigam commissioner. It wasn’t a big issue but was blown out of proportion,” the national general secretary of the BJP said.

Kailash Vijayvargiya also said that the civic officers should not be arrogant and should talk to people’s representatives asserting that both parties should be made to understand ao that such incidents are not repeated. “I think officers should not be arrogant, they should talk to people’s representatives. I saw a lack of it and to ensure that it doesn’t happen again, both of them should be made to understand,” Kailash Vijayvargiya said.

The Senior BJP leader said that he himself was once a “the councillor, mayor and a minister of the department”, and therefore know that no residential building is demolished during rains.

“I don’t know if an order for the same was issued by the government. If it wasn’t, it’s a fault on their part,” he said. “If a building is being demolished anyway, then arrangements are made for the residents to be shifted to a ‘Dharamshala’. There was mishandling from Nagar Nigam. Women staff and women police officers should have been there. It was immature. This should not happen again,” Kailash said.

Akash Vijayvargiya, the BJP MLA representing the assembly seat of Indore-3 in Madhya Pradesh, was released from Indore district jail on Sunday, after being granted bail on Saturday.

Akash Vijayvargiya who was arrested four days ago was garlanded by supporters as he walked out of the jail. He had maintained that he was not embarrassed or guilty of thrashing the municipal corporation officer as he could not think of anything else when women were being mistreated.

“I am not guilty or embarrassed about what I did as it was in public interest. A woman was being dragged brutally in front of the police and I couldn’t think of doing anything else,” he said, adding that he hopes he would not have to pick up the cricket bat again.

Earlier, Akash had said that he will not tolerate hooliganism and corruption at any cost. “I warned them to leave in ten minutes, or they will be responsible for the consequences. But they did not listen to me. This is just the beginning,” he said.

The Indore police had arrested senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya’s son Akash Vijayvargiya under IPC sections 353, 294, 506, 147, 148, for assaulting and obstructing a public servant from performing his duties on Wednesday.

The BJP MLA was recorded thrashing a civic body official using a cricket bat who was in the Ganji Compound area to carry out an anti-encroachment drive. Akash along with his supporters chased the official. The incident took place in full public view including the presence of policemen and television crews.

The arrest of the BJP MLA had let to national outrage. Posters supporting Akash Vijayvargiya appeared in parts of Indore which read, “Salute Akash ji”.

Union Home Minister, Amit Shah had also sought a report after Madhya Pradesh BJP MLA  was arrested.
