Supporters of Madhya Pradesh Health Minister Tulsi Silawat beat up Indore civic body’s workers for removing posters and hoardings wishing the minister on his birthday. Congress leader Tulsi Silawat, who represents Sanwer constituency in Indore district, celebrated his birthday on November 5. For that, his supporters had put up hoardings.
On Tuesday, MP Chief Minister Kamal Nath had ordered removal of posters of leaders and put up posters highlighting Indore being declared as cleanest city fourth time in a row. For this, Indore civic body had started the work of removal of posters. As soon as the supporters got to know that the civic body personnel are removing Silawat’s birthday posters in Residency area, they reached the spot and started misbehaving with them. Silawat’s supporters beat up corporation officials and started abusing them. As per reports, they even pelted stone on them.
As matters escalated, Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) workers stopped the removal of posters and reported the matter to higher ups. Later, the posters were removed after the IMC workers were accompanied by a police team to ensure their safety.
Kamal Nath government’s cabinet minister Tulsi Silawat said he was not aware of the ruckus created by his supporters and said that he will look into the matter.
